Princess of Wales Gold Merino Melton Waistcoat


A delicious greeny gold melton by AW Hainsworth – an eye-catching colour, 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 and Classic Cuts in sizes 36" to 54", with any of our collar types.


We put forward two alternative viscose linings for this outer. If you are going for contrast, we have an eye-catching Teal Blue Viscose; for continuity, we would recommend a Gold Viscose. This said, there woudld 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 Light Cornu 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 Waistcoat in the pictures shows the Princess of Wales Gold Merino Melton made in our Tailored Cut with a Nehru Collar and Light Cornu Buttons.


The Maker


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