I like vests because they allow free movement of the arms, and they are warm. I would only wear that one on an autumn day when it isn't going to rain.

I don't know that I could wear a suede _down_ vest. A suede vest, yes; a down vest, maybe, but a suede down vest seems like a mutt to me. A down vest is ultra-casual, something I think of to keep me warm while camping or backpacking. Suede says business casual to me and I don't know that the two mix well.

it looks a lot better than its description. my first thought was something a Dolce & Gabbana model would wear alone.

I like it - a lot! A great fall look with cords, a sweater and chukas.

I saw that vest at their outlet store. It makes a great layer under a coat for cold days.

It was 50% off either $300 or $375, I can't remember. It was at the Atlantic City store last week. They were showing a saddle/chamois color but there might have been the dark color too.

They had cashmere sweaters for $45.00 apiece as well.
