Glyndebourne Black Single-Breasted Waistcoat by Ottoman Silks
This beautiful black silk jacquard woven single breasted waistcoat has been created exclusively by Ottoman Silks for Glyndebourne with a bespoke woven fabric.
The waistcoat is handmade and finished with two front pockets, matching silk covered buttons and an adjustable back buckle.
This classically tailored waistcoat blends classic western tastes with Ottoman heritage, and is sure to be a conversation starter at Glyndebourne.
The fabric design is taken from the imperial wardrobe of Sultan Selim II (1524–1574). The Siyah Amina fabric is a black silk variation of the Amina design – an intricate staggered ogival lattice of tulips and medallions combined with a repeating horizontal pattern.
Our exclusive replicate design is expertly woven on jacquard looms by the best silk mills in Bursa – Turkey’s silk capital. With over 500 years of history, this intricate design encapsulates the imperial luxury of its time. Like their opulent beginnings, the fabric has been tailored to produce this unique collection to delight and impress in equal measure.
Size is based on chest sizes in inches: 42, 44, 46, 48
