Rated 1 out of 5 by Stocksandbonds Swing and a miss!
I wear "white tie" approximately 5 or 6 times a year which makes renting a shirt, vest and tie rather costly. I had a nice set up until last fall when someone spilled red wine all over everything and ruined it. So, I had to go searching for another set of pique shirt, vest and tie. I'm a big guy, 6'3", 270 lbs. To my joy and excitement, BB offers detachable collar pique shirts up to a size 20" neck which I don't need...I"m about an 18 1/2". So, I had the shirt down and simply needed to purchase the vest...they don't make the vest in anything bigger than a large! The large fits chests up to a size 44". I don't know about anyone else out there, but it would seem to me that if you are going to sell shirts up to a 20" neck, you should at least stock vests to match said shirts up to a 48" chest. It would seem to me that someone walking around with a 20" neck and a 44" chest might find themselves the star of a circus side show. If BB would simply correct this issue and order larger vests, they would have a veritable monopoly on descent pique formal wear...sadly, they dropped the ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debonair86 Beautiful White Marcella Waistcoat!
This is an excellent fitting white-pique single-breasted half-cut waistcoat. It is easy to adjust and forms well to the body. The back fasteners also offer as a great asset, so that it stays in place and I very rarely have to straighten the waistcoat to keep the shirt studs aligned in the center of the waistcoat.

I love BB's formalware. But I returned this particular vest as the fit wasn't right and, for the quality level, I thought it was overpriced.

This is NOT a classic white tie vest. The covered buttons should be removable to be replaced with a mother of pearl white-tie set and the rise of the vest is wrong. BB shows the model in a tuxedo shirt rather than a pique shirt, which is going completely off the rails as far as formal attire goes. B-Squared: please rent a copy of Downton Abbey and watch it TODAY!

I bought this one for my grandson. Let's see, that makes at least 5 I have bought over the years. I believe I'm on my second, then there is one for a son and one for a son-in-law. It's classic and very nice!
