  • where to shop for a waistcoat?

    Hi

    I play three cushion billiards in the national championship here in Italy and they require to wear a waistcoat, dress shirt and trousers and formal shoes. Basically what snooker players wear on tv. Do you have suggestions where to shop a waistcoat?
    Something not too crazy but different from what a waiter would wear, something black in front and satin or of a different fabric on the back, maybe?
    Thank you

        Basically any tailor where you can buy suits. You may need to order one though depending on the store. When I had one of my suits made I made it a three piece suit so that I had the waist coat as well for snooker and formal occassions.

          many pros have extra long "tail" so as you bend over it falls back clean as you stand up.

            this is an option too, I would rather avoid having one made bespoke, since I would wear the waistcoat rarely, six or seven times a year. Do you wear the waistcoat with the trousers you had made? Don't the trousers risk of being too worn compared to the jacket? Or do you have two sets of trousers?

            is the tail the botton back of the waistcoat?

              yes the bit at the back


              if you have a pony-tail hair style you can do "an Ebdon"

                  I have the green tartan one and the Victorian blue one. Both very nice. Don't wear them that often. Only in special tournaments eg finals, which don't happen that often lol.

                      The simple solution is to just Google 'snooker waistcoats' and at least 30 sites will come up, most of them in Britain
