The pockets are welted and very wide, extending right across the breast from the top button level almost to the armhole. The buttons are domed, of wound gilt thread re-embroidered in twisted gilt pearl. The lining of the waistcoat is of beige holland and the back of beige twill silk, cut with a yoke and with two sets of brown tape ties. The pockets are lined with dark brown glazed holland.
