Orange Merino Melton Waistcoat


A vibrant orange pure merino wool melton by AW Hainsworth. An eye-catching orange 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 a Gold Viscose  – but there's no harm in plumping for a sturdy ticking or a sumptuous silk. If you prefer one of the latter – or something else altogether – just check the custom box and let us know what.


Outside we suggest a Brown Corozo button for this outer, as shown in the pictures. You are of course free to select others.


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 fabric made up our Classic Cut Waistcoat with a Mandarin collar. We have used a Light Navy Viscose lining and Brown 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.
