^ Also, the back of the vest reminds me of this shirt, if you wear it with a jacket.

New Meermins, plus upper half with sexy parking garage lighting (Click to show)post #78663 of 787175/21/14 at 11:54ampost #78664 of 787175/21/14 at 12:31pmI never understood the belt and vest thing. To me the belt buckle perfectly resting in the wedge where the last button is unbuttoned anchors the look in a casual outfit and also shows the precise fit of the garment. It might not be the case in a 3 piece but in a casual or odd one I think it looks better.post #78665 of 787175/21/14 at 12:32pmQuote:
With preference for an unconstructed jacket, right? (Like the LBM stuff)post #78666 of 787175/21/14 at 12:37pmQuote:Originally Posted by coldsalmon
Makes me reminisce about this SF gem: http://www.styleforum.net/t/356102/the-blasphemous-odd-vest-jacket-thread/210
But seriously, very well-fitted as always, and nice color coordination to my eye.
Yeah, @Kylerton , love your style!
How much lower should the vest be, for those who think it's too short? I think that's a good length, but what do I know; I only have one vest.
Anyone wearing a 3:2 roll, preferably with surgeon cuffs?post #78667 of 787175/21/14 at 12:43pmpost #78668 of 787175/21/14 at 12:43pmQuote:
I'm 5'7 and I think 28" is spot on for me, with 29" the upper limit. I hem my shirts (that i'd wear untucked with a casual blazer) to 25-26", depending on how many buttons it has (and how close the hem is to the last button).post #78669 of 787175/21/14 at 1:00pmpost #78670 of 787175/21/14 at 1:09pmQuote:Originally Posted by Isolation

I don't care for it much. It feels a bit "cowboy cosplay" imho (which is fine if that's what you're going for of course).
BTW, Kylerton's vest looks like it's of appropriate length, but the pants needs a higher rise.post #78671 of 787175/21/14 at 1:12pmQuote:
That is exactly it, the vest sits just at the right spot when work with the trousers made with it (part of a 3piece suit). These trousers are just lower than most of my others. My personal tailor always says I should show off my belt buckles while wearing a vest?post #78672 of 787175/21/14 at 1:39pm
If the question is the traditional length of the vest in a man’s three-piece suit, then the answer is that it should cover the waistband of the trousers.
These days one can’t count on off-the-rack suits doing that, however. The temporary fashions toward shorter jackets (and thus shorter vests to go with them in a three-piece suit) and lower-rise trousers in combination cause the problem.

I'd be interested to hear explanations for why folks felt this worked. It seems a bit cacophonous to my eye, but as I've already explained, I'm trying to deduce the essence behind working rule-breaking fits. Personally, I don't think this worked. Fit is great, but I don't care for much else. But many clearly disagreed, and I'd like to know why.Quote:Originally Posted by SeaJen

Do like. A lot. I don't thumb as much as I should, but I did thumb this.
If I had one piece of input, it would be that I think the texture of the jacket could have been bolder. Looks like a medium to fine worst. I would have preferred a grosgrain or hopsack, to stand up to the texture elsewhere.post #78674 of 787175/21/14 at 2:11pmQuote:

All the more reason to wear your pants at your natural waist as we discussed yesterday. (And don't listen to your personal tailor, I guess?)post #78675 of 787175/21/14 at 2:14pm
