How to get the correct waistcoat fit
Getting the right fit for your workwear waistcoat is essential to remain comfortable and confident in your appearance while at work.
The waistcoat should fit snugly around your torso and shoulders to leave no excess material that looks baggy. However, it shouldn’t be so tight as to tug at the back around the buttons.
Further tips for getting the right size include:
- If you see wrinkles on the back or sides, choose the next size up because these indicate your waistcoat is too small.
- The garment should be long enough to cover your trouser waistline without exposing your shirt's bottom button.
- You should look for large armholes that allow space around your entire arm so that you can move freely without the material restricting you.

Waistcoats women can wear in the office
Wearing a waistcoat in an office setting can create a professional but striking appearance that sets you apart from your colleagues.
This can be particularly useful when interviewing for roles in the business sector, because the waistcoat helps to keep you memorable.
Throughout the seasons
In the summer, lighter waistcoats made from polyester and viscose mixes – like this Icona waistcoat – can be worn without a jacket and still look great. Alternatively, you can combine them with a long-sleeve single-cuff shirt and chinos or trousers for a professional look.
During the winter, layering a waistcoat into your look is a great way to stay warm. Then, when you remove your overcoat, your waistcoat will help transform a plain shirt and make you look sharp.
The best waistcoat for a black suit
You’ll most often wear a black suit during formal professional settings in moments where getting colour coordination correct is crucial.
Pair a black suit with our black or grey Icona waistcoat to avoid colour clashes. If you’re not wearing a jacket, then choose the grey waistcoat because this works on its own with black trousers.
The best waistcoat for a grey suit
You may opt for grey as your everyday business suit, which is excellent for experimenting with waistcoat colours.
Use our navy Cadenza waistcoat to add a touch of colour to a grey suit and sophistication to your uniform.
