Light Navy Merino Melton Waistcoat


A super lighter navy merino melton by AW Hainsworth. A mid depth navy in a sumptuously soft pure merino wool flannel. A warmer weight textile, this fabric has a magnificent handle and a bright rich colouring. 


This outer is available to order in our Tailored or Classic Cut in sizes 36" to 54", with any of our collar types.


We suggest two alternative viscose linings for this outer, a Light Navy or for more pzazz a Gold Viscose – but there would be no harm in plumping for a sturdy ticking or a sumptuous silk. 


We suggest a Navy Corozo button for this outer, as shown in the pictures. 


Customising your Waistcoat


Our lining and button recommendations are set out in the menu, but you are of course free to choose alternatives.


Custom sizing, button and lining choices should be added when you reach the cart.


Should any additional charges arise from size and length alterations or your choice of lining (a silk lining will add £30 to your order) we will advise you of these and wait for your agreement before commencing your order.




The photographs show the light navy merino mleton made up in our Tailored Cut waistcoat with a Low Nehru collar. We have used a Light Navy Viscose lining and Blue Corozo buttons.


The Maker


This cloth has been in Yorkshire by the wonderful AW Hainsworth who have been busy weaving cloth since 1783. Best known (perhaps) for clothing royalty and the military for full-dress ceremonial occasions, their cloth has embellished and enriched the furnishings of palaces across the world for centuries.
