    Please explain exactly how one threads their pocket watch chain as in the photo: Pointed Double Breasted Morning Waistcoat with Albert Watch Chain Hole & FOB by Charles Rupert Tsua.

  2. Thanks for sharing Charles.

  3. Karl says:

    I am trying to find a good light grey double breasted waistcoat from a retailer in the US. Do you know of a good place to go for one? Thank you for your consideration!

  4. Grammar Police says:

    “Apart from that, black is also perfectly acceptable to wear when not attending a funeral, as Prince Charles perfectly demonstrates in this picture.” — Except this text does not appear to be near the picture showing the black waistcoat.

  5. Grammar Police says:

    “Double breasted waistcoats, on the other hand, feature them either in the middle, such as this one worn by Prince Charles. ” — Rather, the one shown is worn by Charles Rupert Tsua, who is not a Prince.

    I personally, would very much like to know where I can find a Gentlemen’s Store / Bespoke Tailor / Costumier purveying these.

  7. Kathleen says:

    Which waistcoat is generally more flattering on a larger man, single breasted or double breasted?

  8. In that case I’d go with shawl collar but peaked is acceptable too. Where did you find the waistcoats?


  1. [...] the groom and his best men wore dove grey single breasted morning vests without lapels and watchchains and both left their bottom button unbuttoned. Single Breasted [...]

  2. […] you get a single breasted vest in buff or sand you can wear it as a morning waistcoat or with a stroller suit, business suit in solids or pinstripes as well as sport coats and tweed […]
