Vests are further divided into coats and underwear; the underwear worn alone refers to the sleeveless T-shirt. The waistcoat originated in Europe in the 16th century. It is a collarless, sleeveless jacket with two sides of the hemline open. It is about knee length, made of satin, and decorated with colorful embroidered lace. After 1780, the body was shortened to match the suit. The waistcoat is now mostly single row, a few double rows, or with a collar. Its characteristic is that the front piece is made of the same fabric as the suit and the back is made of the same material. Some belt loops and clips are also installed at the back and waist to adjust the tightness.
