Lamb's-Wool Cardigan Waistcoat

Dress with cool-weather style in our men's waistcoat.


A perennial favourite with men, this featherlight waistcoat is made of the finest Scottish lambswool for a warm but unintrusive layer under a blazer or by itself to deflect the chill. Rib-knit strapping around the edges holds the sweater's shape. Five-button front with slightly pointed front bottom hem. Two pockets with navy and heather grey stripe lining to match the lining in the back yoke. In grey. 100% Scottish lambswool. Hand wash.
Sizes: L(42-44), XXL(50-52).

    Great Product - 10/31/2013

    Reviews I read before purchasing this sweater indicated it was too short. I am 6'2" and 195 lbs. and the large fits perfectly.

    Hmmm.. - 6/1/2013

    As others have alluded to already..the fit of this garment is far too poor,too boxy.It was not what I expected and the striping on the yoke at the back is ill judged.Keep things simple.I have to say Orvis do not do themselves favors by having such poor or limited photography of their products.This shall be returned.

    This vest is outstanding for its price. LambsWool is smooth and is cut such that it fits very nicely. This vest holds its shape well. We wish it came in more colors!

    outdated shape - 1/6/2012
    By: from Oklahoma City

    I bought this vest for my husband. He wanted a gray button-down vest for Christmas and this was the only one I could find anywhere…online or in the stores. But when he tried it on, it was too short and boxy. The quality of the wool and craftmanship is good, but the fit is old-fashioned. If it were longer and more fitted, it would be a good vest for my attorney husband who doesn't want to look 10 years older than he is.

    Warm - 12/30/2011

    At first i was reluctant to get a vest but keeps me warmer than I thought and is comfortable to wear at the office.

    fine product - 12/29/2011
    By: from Simsbury, CT

    Met the typically fine quality product associated with the Orvis brand. Regretably, it was just a little too large across the shoulders and I had to return it. But, the problem laid with my build and not with Orvis. As a side note, I'd like to see Orvis offer more sports shirts that breath. Those that feature "no wrinkle", just don't cut it.
