Petrol Blue Merino Melton Waistcoat


A divine deep petrol blue pure merino melton by AW Hainsworth. This unusual and eyecatching colour is made up in a sumptuously soft pure merino wool flannel. A warmer weight textile, the 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 Teal Blue or a Fawn – but there's no harm in plumping for a sturdy ticking or a sumptuous silk. 


Outside 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 our Classic Cut Waistcoat with an extra-low Low Nehru collar made up in Petrol Blue Merino Melton. We have used a Fawn 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.
