Down vests over suit coats

post #1 of 79
Thread Starter 
Italians have been doing this for years, wearing down vests/ padded gilets/ bodywarmers over suit coats/jackets. I always thought it looked silly but seeing it a lot, i am changing my mind. http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/4...VestBlazer.jpg Should i get one? Leon

I figured it out; they don't show up inline but appear if I copy-paste the url into the address bar.

The first pic isn't all that bad actually. Probably because it's a more casual outfit anyway. The second is awful. No way!

im Italian, and that is news to me, i never seen the well dress italian in a sport jacket and down vest. An individual may have worn it, but as a Italian style/fashion... i don't think so.

For all the shit Europeans give Americans for the way they dress, they sure know how to douche things up. Really, this look is beyond either "try hard" or "amjack". This is akin to beastiality: no good can come from it.

Other than in magazines or store websites, I haven't seen this IRL.

Come to Rome. It is the repeated sightings of this that is making me think about it.

I vote no. In fact, I give it a Mr. Yuk:

Don't do it, i'm surprised someone hasn't been shot for this.

Not a fan of the pics.

I think it'd be almost doable if the vest were as long or longer than the jacket.
