3 button waistcoat

Traditionally a black tie outfit means covering your waist. Many men choose to add a formal waistcoat, a vest that is specifically designed for wearing with your tuxedo, to do that.

Vest Back

Black (Standard)

Black lining fabric on the back panel of your vest is a classic look.

Match Inner Lining

The back panel uses the same material as your jacket inner lining selection.

Match Exterior Fabric

For those who want the exterior back of their jacket to match their jacket fabric for a more seamless look when worn without a jacket.

Extra Pair of Pants

Pants get more wear and tear than jackets so if you wear your suits on a regular rotation, it is recommended that you have an extra pair of pants for each suit.

One Trouser

Yes (+$399.67)

Pant Back Pockets

Two (Standard)

Two back pockets are a balanced and standard option.

One on Right

If you don’t use your back pockets or prefer a minimalist look, go with one back pocket on either side or no back pockets.

One on Left

If you don’t use your back pockets or prefer a minimalist look, go with one back pocket on either side or no back pockets.


A true minimalist look if back pockets don’t spark joy for you.

Belt Loops


Belt loops are a tried and true option.

No - with Side Tabs

Go without belt loops for a sleeker look that mimics formalwear. Not recommended for pants worn in conservative contexts where belts are expected.

Suspender Buttons

Add these buttons to the inside waistband of your pants if you enjoy sporting suspenders (braces).
