UK "vest", as in US "undershirt", or US "vest", as in UK "waistcoat"?

I'm 99% certain it's the former: UK "vest", as in US "undershirt"

Thanks!

GPC doesn't have fest but does have gwest which it glosses as "vest" and lists crys isaf "lower shirt" as a synonym, which does seem to support that.

And the Bangor dictionary has fest and glosses it as "vest" or "singlet".
