A well-dressed man never goes out of style. And what best than a vest to dress that man.
Our Jason Vest works well over button downs, casually over a T-Shirt or underneath a suit jacket.

The vest is slim cut and can further be adjusted with the fastener on the back.
The V-neck Front closes with five buttons and has two pockets on either side.

    Can anyone tell me how much of each fabric I need…it says 1 3/8yards but is that for everything (lining and front piece) and if so, can anyone let me know how much of each I need (I’m making a size 50 if that helps)…any advice very gratefully received!!

    I am currently making this vest, and i LOVE the pattern, but i feel like the instructions are really vague in comparison to other patterns i’ve purchased via burdastyle :(

      I couldn’t agree more with that. I’m currently working on muslin and I’m having the hardest time understanding the later parts of the instructions.

    Great a waistcoat! I’ll probably make one. It looks a little large on the back though, I think. Perhaps it is just too large for the model and not an issue with the pattern. I like waistcoats quite fitted, after all they should fit under a formal jacket.

    Do you think that a lady could wear this too? or would there be some alterations? I like the look of this one rather than the Louisa vest…

    I love this pattern! Something else that I was looking for is a pattern for Male Jeans. It is very difficult for me too find any. Any Suggestions?

    Wow, this couldn’t have come at a better time, well maybe a few weeks ago… I’m getting married Saturday and have been searching for the perfect vest for my hubby-to-be. Since he is really slim but has wide shoulders it’s been nearly impossible. Now that I have a great looking pattern there may be hope yet! This looks great!

    I like it! It’s nice to see a “his” to last weeks “hers” vest. David makes a great model as well. Good job Burdastyle!
