Buying advice for men's waistcoats
Sleeveless well dressed at die-form.de
A strong wind is blowing and at the same time the sun is shining warmly from the sky on this spring day. The typical transitional weather in which an outdoor waistcoat keeps you warm and comfortable at the same time. For your excursion into the forest today, go for an outdoor waistcoat with a stand-up collar, which is also breathable and goes well with your hoodie. You can roam through the undergrowth with ease, because the waistcoat offers you plenty of arm room. So you can really enjoy the transitional period between the seasons. In this guide you will learn everything about men's waistcoats and get tips on how to choose and cleverly combine functional waistcoats, stand-up collars and jackets.
Our suit waistcoats for an elegant evening out
When you choose a classic suit waistcoat, you usually choose a model where the front is made of suit fabric and the back is made of a lining fabric such as satin. Classic waistcoats often have four to six buttons, which means that the row of buttons visually stretches the upper body compared to other models. If you prefer a more relaxed look, classic waistcoats without lapels can also be combined well with men's straight-fit jeans. A matching suit belt combines the different styles.
Dinner jacket waistcoats are not usually worn alone. Instead, they are worn under a tuxedo jacket when the occasion or temperature calls for elegant layering. Dinner jacket jackets usually have three or four buttons. Tailcoat waistcoats are characterised by the tapered form of the lapel and are worn instead of a classic tailcoat.
Casual look with denim, knitted and sweat waistcoats
If you want to wear your waistcoat primarily as a fashion accessory, jeans, knitted and sweat waistcoats are a good choice. With plain jumpers in a contrasting colour or checked shirts, your men's denim waistcoats look particularly rocking. Sweat waistcoats also look great worn alone - especially if you have muscular upper arms. Alternatively, you can combine such a model with a loose T-shirt. Add a pair of matching jogging pants and your casual sports and leisure outfit is ready.
Men's knitted waistcoats go with a more sedate casual look and combine well with a jumper made of the same material. Go for colour contrasts here too. Most cardigans are available in rather muted colours such as dark blue or grey, so a light jumper, for example in white or beige, is a good choice.
Warmth and comfort in transitional seasons: Softshell, quilted and down waistcoats for men
For changeable autumn days when the sun is shining but a cool wind is blowing, warming waistcoats ideally with a detachable hood are the ideal choice. You can combine them perfectly with a thick jumper. Men's quilted waistcoats are wind- and water-repellent and breathable. They transport perspiration to the outside and are thus faithful companions when the weather is once again indecisive.
If you want to be dressed warmly in winter, but still need freedom of movement for activities like chopping the Christmas tree, thick men's down waistcoats are a good choice.
Tips for an accurate fit
Waistcoats are extremely comfortable because they give you enough arm room, allowing you to move freely. However, to ensure that the waistcoat fits perfectly, there are a few fit tips that you should follow:
- The length of the waistcoat should always be sufficient to cover the waistband of the trousers, but should not extend beyond the hip bone.
- As a rule, the lowest button of a waistcoat is worn open.
- When trying on the waistcoat, you should tighten the back strap, if present. This will prevent the waistcoat from sliding up.

The right care
The correct care of waistcoats depends largely on the material used. Here you will find an overview of important care tips:
- Fleece, synthetics and cotton can be washed in the washing machine according to the manufacturer's washing instructions.
- Down, suit, tweed and leather waistcoats often require gentle cleaning. It is advisable to dry clean them and follow the care instructions on the label exactly.
- Functional materials should be washed in the washing machine without using fabric softener in order to preserve the special fibres and maintain the optimal ventilation properties of the fabric in the long term.
