Civilian Single Breasted Vests

#1602 Shawl inPartial Collar

#1602FC Full Collar



This vest is probably the most common style being worn by civilian men in period images. It was also quite common on enlisted men in both Union and Confederate Armies because neither army issued vests. In a soldier's case, the vest was usually brought from home or procured from a local dry goods store. Officer's purchased their vests from military clothiers. Made from civilian weight wools and other fabrics, our shawl collar vest features two front welted pockets and the shawl style collar. Two collar styles are available. Click on the picture for a description of both styles. Five cloth covered buttons are sewn on the front, and the back is adjustable by means of a belt and buckle. Lining is Natural Cotton, back and adjustable back belt is cotton. 

Made in the USA!
