I know that many jackets for warm weather are unlined in the rear interior and each side of the front interior as it wears much cooler provided the shell fabric is cooler wearing. Of course, such jackets are still fully lined in the sleeves as they would be hard to put on and take off without the sleeve lining.

is it practical for each side of the front interior of a waistcoat to be unlined or would it be hard to put on and take off?

I don't know that it would be any harder to put on and take off as there are no sleeves. Put I'm not sure it would look right, particularly of light weight cloth. Think it might bunch up in an unsightly way.

And FWIW, I actually find jackets with a very light weight high quality rayon lining such as Bemberg more comfortable than largely unlined ones, though I'm evidently in the minority.

During my days as a public transport office commuter I would sometimes find a convenient air conditioning vent that wouldn't disturb coworkers and drape my jacket over it for a couple of minutes before leaving. This would allow me to depart with a few minutes in air conditioned bliss! 馃槏

I don't see how lining the interior front of a waistcoat would matter much concerning ease of putting on or taking off, It's sleeveless. In fact the lining would allow movement when buttoned.
