This material is heavier than most but looks extremely rich. Any fabric we have can be made into a waistcoat. Each waistcoat has pockets that act like belt loops to allow you to wear a Santa belt and take your continental coat off. The pockets are working pockets and have a faux button on the front flap for decoration. All buttons are chosen by our team to make your vest or waistcoat look outstanding and remember, not all material is in stock, so order early.
