If in doubt please contact us for advice. Your waistcoat will be tailored based on the measurements you send to us. Although alterations can be made at a minimal charge we cannot accept responsibility for problems caused by inaccurate measurements. We are confident that you will be delighted with your order but please note that as your waistcoat is made to measure no refunds can be given.
