There is a bunch of examples of sleeveless items starting from the very first mentions of the clothing – togas in Ancient Rome, viking apron dresses in the early Middle Ages and tabards in 14th century Europe. However the short upper-body garment that is unambiguously identified as a Middle Ages vest appeared in late 17th century and further evolved into a modern waistcoat.
According to the historical sources it was mainly worn by men, but we took the liberty to recede from canons and created several amazing items inspired by Period. Decorated with trim or with volume elements, boned and working as a corset or loose fit, adjustable with lacing or fastened with closures – we did our best so that you can find exactly what you are looking for.
