    Hi all, first post here! [​IMG]

    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.

    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.
