Vests / Waistcoats

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi all, first post here! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Let's talk about vests / waistcoats. I think they're awesome because:

- they're a great layering piece in cool and cold weather

- you can easily throw them on and completely change the look of an outfit

- they're probably the simplest article of clothing from a perspective of fit

 

However, it is REALLY difficult to find good vests that aren't a part of a 3-piece suit. This fall I would like to build my vest collection and I've searched so many sites (including all the affiliates) for something which is:

- not part of a 3-piece suit, as mentioned above

- something other than a basic single-breasted vest, such as a double-breasted, shawl collar, etc.

- less than $250

 

What're your thoughts on vests? Any advice on where to buy vests?

No love for a newbie? :(

 

If anyone knows of brands / stores that sell vest separates that would be much appreciated.

+1 RL Rugby really is what you are looking for! Except for the shawl collars criteria. I wonder if anyone has an idea for finding any below 250$. All waistcoats with shawl collars which I can think of are a bit more expensive. wink.gif

I don't like the vest over shirt look. Looks too trendy to me.

How else would you wear a waist-coat, other than over the shirt?

Rugby is good. Right now they mostly have summer stuff, and there's no way I'm wearing a vest in the summer! I'll check back in a few weeks...

 



 


I'd be curious to know the sources, if only for eye candy.
