This is a vintage black evening wear waistcoat. Probably dating from 1940s. Great for 40s night - or good for vintage train driver etc  

Please note true vintage waistcoats are much shorter than modern waistcoats and come just above the waistline- they would have been worn over a cummerbund. 

This waistcoat is black pure wool fabric at the front and black rayon fabric at the back.  It fastens at the front with 6 black buttons and there are four small slip in front pockets.  This waistcoat has been altered at the back and a piece of fabric has been added at the back to extend the size. 

The waistcoat is lined with striped rayon fabric. 

Size 40 chest - from armpit to armpit measures 20 inches. If the piece was removed at the back chest size would be 38 inches.   Length from nape of neck to hem is 24 inches.

Condition - fair vintage condition - there are two spot marks on the front and some slight wear near the button holes.    The buttons are original.  The backing fabric has been extended by adding a panel of different fabric.  There are marks on the lining.
