Solid color button sweater vest; they seem quite hard to come by. I'd like to own one to add an extra layer of warmth during the colder months. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm looking for one in black or dark charcoal preferably. The only contenders thus far are:

Orvis Merino Cashmere Blend Button Sweater Vest

Hickey Freeman Cable Westcot Vest
(Although, WAY over priced for an nearly 50% acrylic blend. Like the styling though)

Earlier this year while searching for a source for a sweater vest, I kept coming up with Savile Row tailors wearing them. It gave me the idea to search eBay U.K. and found maker John Smedley. I ordered several and found them really well made and the dye work is excellent. Their wool and cotton products seem to be highly regarded albeit a bit on the highend in pricing. Mine was gotten for about $75.00 new plus shipping from U.K. Hope this helps.
