We initially produced the Type C-3 waistcoat, first introduced in 1936 and designed to be worn as an undergarment, as an authentic recreation of the original. However we receive many requests for the C-3 with various custom additions such as applying a pocket, different back, neck and panel configurations, upgraded zipper and many more which we are happy to accommodate to ensure it is a more functional waistcoat for our customers.
Due to the nature of the natural raw materials we use and the traditional method of manufacture we employ it is not always possible to meet exact measurement requirements. The products we build are not designed to be tailored like a suit, they will after a "break in" period soften and mold to the shape of your own body, our jackets are built to be worn. We do not use a production line system or have racks of jackets ready to ship, each and every jacket is made to order, individually handcrafted here in Scotland by one of our specialists.Bespoke patterns can be created if preferred, please contact us direct with specifications for a full quote.
