Contrasting Waistcoats

Bespoke custom made at “A Hand Tailored Suit” its like having the world at your finger tips, ever wondered what it would be like to create and design your perfect wedding attire, well gents and ladies we have the magic to make this happen, we have over 2000 cloths available from some of the best cloth merchants from around the world, with lots more couples now wanting something a little bit different allowing you to wear your wedding attire again, like this stunning navy herringbone vibrant blue tweed suit as seen above worn with contrasting tweed checked waistcoat, you could easily where your tweed jacket and waistcoat with a smart pair of jeans or chinos afterwards, or you could wear your two piece tweed suit to the office for that important meeting.

Here’s a little tip, when a jacket and the waistcoat works really well make sure you have the same hints of colors running through them plus the same textures, you could also add a strong plain contrasting waistcoat like the image below worn with a beautiful cashmere waistcoat, I wouldn’t advise making your contrasting waistcoat to busy as long as you have the right style this will make you look a million dollars. We can custom make either a single breasted or double breasted waistcoat,  this looks amazing worn with the same tonal knitted tie, as the sand color check running through the suit, this just shows your keeping the colors to a minimum this just looks so elegant with the little details of your lapel button hole contrasting and your cuff stitching.

When wearing a contrasting waistcoat make sure you make good use of your accessories like matching a little color into your tie and pocket square as this can look so classy when matched well, as worn below with a light blue bespoke shirt with contrasting white collar and cuffs. This medium grey cashmere flannel suit looks so smart with contrasting blue cashmere waistcoat, see how the colors in the tie work so well with the grey suit, blue with the waistcoat and white with the collars and cuffs, even the pocket square has blue and white a perfect example.

Again here’s a great example of matching the right amount of colors together, I would try and stick to three or four colors this being your shirt, jacket, trousers, tie, pocket square and shoes and even your belt if your thinking of wearing a belt match this with your shoe color and even your watch. We have some amazing cloths and textures available:

As seen below in a contrasting flannel blue jacket worn with contrasting waistcoat and trousers in a hounds-tooth matched with a silver tie and pocket square,  extremely elegant. Why not book in today and let us design and create your perfect wedding or business attire.
