Waistcoats, fabric lengths and measurements



Buttons are very  important accessories that can either give prestige to a waistcoat or make it look ridiculous if neglected. Their buttons therefore must be chosen with utmost care.

Even though fabric can be sold in single width (about 75 centimetres wide), tartan is generally sold in “double width”fabric (about 150 centimetres wide).
You can either order yourself the fabric and send it to me to my address in France or I can take care of everything.
