The largest waistcoat collection in the world!

The largest waistcoat collection in the world!

We know, it's a bold claim, and admittedly we have absolutely no way of substantiating it in the slightest... so we're going to run with it until someone tells us otherwise! Single-breasted waistcoats, double-breasted waistcoats, patterned waistcoats, plain waistcoats, silk waistcoats, linen waistcoats, black waistcoats, colourful waistcoats... you get the picture! What you see online is only fraction of the waistcoats we currently stock - there are many more styles to be explored in our Pall Mall and Piccadilly Arcade stores (and hopefully very soon, you will indeed be able to come in and try on to your heart's content). And this is all without considering our Made-to Measure service, which just about gives you free reign on waistcoat design.

Whether or not we really do have the world's largest men's waistcoat collection, the point is that we're very proud of our garments. The waistcoat, or vest as our American cousins like to call it, is one of those garments that swings in and out of menswear trends, but for sartorialists and lovers of tailoring it has always been an ever-present accessory.

If you've been following Favourbrook for a while, or have visited us in our waistcoat boutique in Piccadilly Arcade or our flagship store on Pall Mall, you'll appreciate the depth of styles we have on offer. Every season, we release new timeless designs, but the essence remains the same - a waistcoat can be an integral element to a formal and smart ensemble, offering a hint of pattern, colour and personality in contrast to the charcoal or navy uniformity it peeps out from. On a more practical level, the waistcoat adds an extra layer of gentlemanly armoury, providing the torso with a little extra protection. From an aesthetic point of view, the angle of the waistcoat's lapels also serve a subtle but no less important function: along with the shirt collar and the lapels of your jacket, the sweep of your waistcoat makes up the trinity of shapes that navigate an onlooker's gaze upward to your face (the cherry on the cake!)

At Favourbrook this season, we have a vast selection of waistcoats for all occasions, from summer weddings and Royal Ascot to elegant styles for black tie soirees and sophisticated evening events. For elegant summer events, not least weddings, the pastel tones in our linen double-breasted waistcoats make for excellent options. With that typical swoop of the shawl lapel and a slightly textural slub in the linen, they pair beautifully with charcoal or black morning coats, not to mention our new navy morning suit from our Ascot collection.

For those who prefer the single-row button configuration of the single-breasted waistcoat, we have a huge selection of versatile, block colour silk styles, together with a host of more flamboyant patterned options designed to catch the eye and show personality. Floral motifs are especially popular during the summer months, with the ornate use of embroidery bringing a unique artisanal touch to the finish. Otherwise, a subtle geometric pattern is another great way to introduce a certain confidence to your sartorial look.

Whichever style of waistcoat you decide to choose, rest assured that you'll find it at Favourbrook. It might take you some time of course - after all, we do have the largest waistcoat collection in the world 😜.
