    Vest is a piece of clothing I truly adore. It is quite obvious in three piece suits but wearing an odd vest requires a certain dose of sophistication in terms of mixing textures, patterns and colors. That's why I thought it would be a great subject of Friday Challenge.

    Since we are running late (because of me - truly sorry for this!) and it is already Wednesday, I don't think it makes sense to finish the challenge this Friday so lets postpone the end until next week.

    • Entries finish Saturday Jan 16th midnight CET (sorry folks, I'm Polish ;)).
    • The poll closes on Monday Jan 18th midnight GMT

    1. Outfit in the entry should be worn this week or next week
    2. The vest can be of any type and cut SB or DB without collar or with any type of collar you like
    3. Of course you need more than a vest to look good so please make sure that at least your shirt and tie/bow tie/ascot are visible in the pic as well ... but we are all waiting for incredible combos with suits or blazers and odd trousers ;)

    Good luck gentlemen!

    Your entries

    Happy new year to ya'all.
    For I've been wearing an odd vest for the first time last tuesday, and I'm pretty sure I won't do it again these weeks, here is my participation

    Collecting an odd vest at my tailor today, and plan to wear it at Pitti next week, so I might just be participating.

    This is a suit. Maybe at some point I can have my wife take a full body shot.
