At first I thought I'd like a full-on country tweed check, then brown herringbone, now navy - i'm sure it'll change again tomorrow! Lapel or no lapel, breast pockets or not? I'm having trouble deciding, so show me your waistcoats boys! This is a call for all tweedsters to strut their stuff!
Cheers and open the flood gates.........!
Because most "real life people" don't wear stylish waistcoats.
I wore them years ago with sport coats, but the style basically vanished
at least in the US with the passing of the Ivy look in the 70s. I can recall
the Paul Stuart windows in New York which often featured odd vests
(not tweed) with dressy suits- grey with blue, for example.
