No Tarz, I have never heard of a "waistcoat" either. No such word on this side of the pond. :D

I have picked up several strange words from veganfitness. The first that come to mind are 'chuffed' and 'knackered'.

As to waistcoat, it sounds like something you would wear in the 19th century along with your tophat and monocle :D

That's what I was thinking!
I've found myself saying 'mate' a lot lately....hehe, and the other day I told someone to sort it out! (followed by mate) Thanks for that one Richard! :lol:
