  • 1940s Vintage Gadabout Linen Waistcoat

    Polished and yet relaxed cream linen four-pocket waistcoat with a timeless vintage look.

    In response to the popular demand for our forties tropical style suit, the 'Gadabout', we've created a matching waistcoat. The suit has been a popular choice for vintage nostalgia events and festivals amongst our customers - why not enhance the look further with a coordinating waistcoat?

    As always with our Socialite range, we have replicated an original vintage item - in this case, a 1940s waistcoat.

    Key authentic features include:

    • Six-button fastening, with coordinating buttons.
    • Satin back in a complementary colour.
    • Back half-belt with adjustable buckle.
    • Two top welt pockets and two bottom flap pockets.
    • Pleats down the chest.

    The front fabric is 80% linen and 20% cotton. The back is synthetic.

    Pairing this handsome waistcoat with our Gadabout fishtail trousers makes for a fabulous and authentic look which is a great choice for hotter weather. Add the coordinating Gadabout jacket for a complete three-piece suit look in a tropical cream linen that has all the charm of Clark Gable's iconic off-screen wardrobe.

    This listing is for the waistcoat only.

    Please note: our 2023 run of the Gadabout items (including the new matching waistcoat) is very slightly different in shade to our previous 2022 run - worth bearing in mind if you already own a piece or pieces from the Gadabout line. The colour is still a beautiful cream linen and the difference is difficult to spot.
