Frequently Asked Questions
Vests - General FAQ's
Q. What size am I and how do I know what size to order?
A. Taking measurements is very important in ensuring you get the right fit. There is a size chart available on every Vest for both Men, Boys and Ladies. The best way to ensure you get the right fit is measure your Chest/Bust and Waist. Order the next Vest up from the largest measurement. We add 5cm to the 'fit' size as these items are hand cut and sewn, so can vary slightly, plus our body can fluctuate on size during different times of the day.
Q. What is a Cravat/Ascot?
A. A Cravat/Ascot is a similar to a Necktie, only shorter & wider. We do have a few variations of the tie, however, the below image demonstrates what a Cravat/Ascot looks like. For a Men's size, it is approximately 36cm in length & approximately 11cm at the widest point. Most of our Vest images show a Cravat/Ascot.
Q. What is the price of a Custom-made Vest?
A. Our pricing varies, depending on the size required and also the fabric, so please check the product you are interested in for prices.
Q. If I wanted a different colour Polyester backing than what is shown with the Vest can I change it?
A. If it is a Custom-made Vest then most certainly you can choose whichever colour you would like from our range of lining colours.
Q. How long until delivery of a Custom-made Vest?
A. We give a guideline of 4-6 weeks from payment, but Vests are usually delivered sooner than this.
Q. Do you have Ladies Custom-made Vests?
A. Yes, of course. The Ladies Vest is cut slightly differently to the images shown, in order to allow for the bust. See below for further FAQ's regarding Ladies Vests.
Men's & Boy's Vests FAQ's
Q. I am a tall man, so can I have a longer back length than what your size guide shows?
A. Yes, you certainly can. As our Vests are all Custom-made, they are made to order, including longer or shorter lengths. There is a 'notes' box when you order from us, so you can put a note in there that a **cm back is required.
Q. My waist is larger than me chest or my chest is larger than my waist, so can the Vest be adjusted to fit?
A. You would order the Vest to the largest of the two measurements. There is an adjustment strap at the back of the Vest to pull it in at the Waist if necessary.
Ladies Vests FAQ's
Q. What if the Ladies standard Vest measurements are not right for me as I have a larger/smaller bust?

Q. If I need a larger quantity than what you have in stock, can I order more?
A. It will depend on what it is as many of our Neckties are end of run stock, so we only have a limited quantity and usually cannot get more stock. Most other items can be ordered from our suppliers.
