A vest is a knit sweater (usually v-neck) with no arms. A waistcoat is the third part of a three-piece suit (multi-button front, usually one or three besom pockets). Unless you're American. Then, god help you, your country rewrites its vocabulary at will (e.g., "the man pled guilty").

All waistcoats are vests.

Not all vests are waistcoats.

That is a cool look. I am now interested in looking for a similar waistcoat.

This irks me everyday when I hear it in court. Why can't we 'Merkicuns get it right?

"'I suspect it is for similar reasons,' he e-mailed, 'that we don’t say ‘readed,’ ‘bleeded’ or ‘speeded’ — they are unpoetic…I acknowledge that we lawyers do say ‘deeded,’ but in that instance, consider the alternative.' The O.E.D. traces 'pled' to Scottish legal usage and dialect."

Forget the waistcoat; Where can I get this guy's chin?

Try Reed & Taylor, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, they make the cloth which is probably the very best quality that you cand get today.

Buy one from anyplace. Buy leather buttons, and have your tailor add them to the vest.
