As "Victorian" stretched from 1837 to 1901 it would help if we knew what period of waistcoat, whether day or evening, and what status.

Hi
Its a school project he is doing for working class/poor status. He has not been given any dates, just to say its victorian.

In that case I would have thought a tweedy wool, not too heavy, would be best, and a linen lining.
