About us

The vest already existed centuries ago on its own. Nobly worn by kings, elegantly set in scene by aristocrats, up to rough and cool for cowboys. Since the beginning of the 20th century, it has been known almost exclusively as a piece that accompanies a suit or dinner jacket, known as the three-piece suit, but was pushed it into the background. It’s no wonder that when people talk about vests nowadays, they immediately think of a suit vest.

The Munich-based design manufacture DORNSCHILD created an entirely new genre with its founding in 2013. It is a genre that shows the theme of vests in a new light for the men’s fashion world that is both modern yet timeless.  Hardly any other garment can be used and combined in so many ways and creates an attractive look in no time at all

DORNSCHILD still goes a few steps further because a vest back made of lining is taboo, the buckles for adjusting the size have been set almost entirely on the sides and concealed. What’s more, the shoulders are wider, and the silhouettes have a narrower cut, giving them that extra special and robust look. That’s why at DORNSCHILD, vests are called “sleeveless jackets”.
