    inexpensive waistcoat from JC Penney

    Hi all-
    I've seen some threads (now closed) about inexpensive waistcoats from Target. I wasn't too impressed with their online selection so I tried JC Penney and just ordered this waistcoat.

    In case the hyperlink doesn't work it's called Stafford Essentials Capewool Vest. On sale for $24.99, marked down from $60.00. Hopefully it'll look sharp with the MacPherson hunting kilt I have on order from USAKilts.

    Hope this helps someone else!

    Very nice waistcoat. I like the one with the lapels, too.

    I wasn't so sure about the brown color so I went for the other one. And I also ordered the matching sport coat to go with it. I'll have to start some research about the proper cut of a coat...

    That I like. If ya have one check out the Burlington coat Factory. I have found they offer a very nice Tweed waist coat for about the same price. I love the one I got from there. I will have to be visiting our local Penny's soon.

    I had looked at their website, but couldn't find anything beyond (surprise!) coats. I'll have to check out the actual store. It's been so long since I've bought something from a store instead of online...I'm not sure I'll remember how to do it.

    Do you know if it is alread the right length for a kilt or will it need some altering? Either way, it looks great and I may have to pick one up.

    I have no idea how it'll work out with the kilt. I'm hoping that the vest will be passable and as for the coat, if it works that'd be great...if not I need to wear a blazer to work everyday anyway. I really don't have any way of getting the coat altered into a proper kilt-style jacket.

    Good to know. Once the coat comes in I'll see if I think I want to modify it or not.
