The Posh waistcoat is a recurring piece of clothing in the Dragon Quest series. This fashionable high-quality vest for men provides a surprising amount of defence.


Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

A stylish, high quality vest that raises its wearer's defence.[1]

The posh waistcoat has a defence bonus of +48 and can only be worn by Angelo. It can be sold to a shop for 3,250 gold, but it is not recommended to do so as there is only one in the game. The posh waistcoat is given to the party by Princess Minnie after giving her 36 mini medals.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]
