A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
While America’s colonial years were filled with new settlements, growing cities, and a revolution, the fashion of the 1700s was imported from overseas. As the United States fought to separate from England, colonial style was adopted from France, the nation that helped young America with its revolution. Men of the 18th century’s colonial years followed French style, wearing decorative and colorful waistcoats as part of their everyday attire. Often lavishly embroidered and crafted from different types of fabric including silk, cotton, brocade, and wool, the waistcoat was a crucial piece of every man’s suiting.

A man, or even young boy, without a waistcoat was often viewed as “undressed” if he stepped out of his home in only a coat or shirt. The colonial waistcoat resembled a stylish vest, hitting the upper part of the thigh in length and opening into an upside-down “V” past the stomach. When boys reached seven or eight years of age, they transitioned from children’s clothing to smaller versions of their fathers’ waistcoats to signal their growth.

An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes collection of historical clothing, this colonial period waistcoat is authentic to the boys’ attire of 18th century America. Your costume includes a single waistcoat, fully lined and crafted out of polyester. At the front of the vest are ornate gold buttons to complete the elegant colonial look. This waistcoat, or vest, does have a full back, allowing children to easily slip it on atop a colonial shirt. Pair this colonial waistcoat with our wide selection of colonial clothing pieces, accessories, and added details to create your very own personalized colonial period costume.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.

 If you're unsure about your size, measure a similar, NON-STRETCH garment you already own and love. Compare its measurements to the ones on our size chart to ensure you choose the right fit."
