The Waistcoat vs the Vest


A lil street etiquette for ya. This is how you wear a waistcoat and vest. Folks nowadays are always wearing their clothes too big and baggy. A vest can be worn a little looser (see left), but a waistcoat must fit around your torso (see right). It looks great with a tie and really makes a great layering piece.

Do you prefer a waistcoat or a vest?
