Waistcoat=Vest, undershirt is odd since actually it is shirt, what we
call shirts is more like a term for Blouse. But interesting how things
go, since Blouse is most often used only by women for a shirt with
buttons, and long sleeve. But still used in the US Military for the
outer shirt (the camoglauge one, versus the brown t-shirt (named for
look or for tennis or ..?).
