A waistcoat, or a vest as it is known as ‘Down Under’, with a unique inner vest. The outer layer has creative additions such as pleating on the sides and a tab on the back. A drawstring around the bottom helps to add shape to the garment. It is a modern twist to a classic piece.
The outer fabric is a strong cotton in a khaki colouring, which is a great colour to accessorise. The inner fabric is also a cotton, with a khaki and teal scrolling pattern. Buttons are teal, with an inner colouring of deep khaki.
