Vest Life

“History always repeats itself” a wise man once told me, and as the years go by that statement is definitely a fact. At one point in time vest were expensive, worn by only those with money and associated with older gentlemen. Now a days vest are back by popular demand and are worn to casual and business professional  events all over the world.  According to Merriam-webster.com a vest is a sleeveless piece of clothing with buttons down the front that is worn over a shirt and under a suit jacket.  Having a vest within your wardrobe adds another dynamic and is beneficial because you spend money but you gain more.

In regards to style it’s always important that you know the do’s and don’t when wearing specific garment. In this case a vest first should be well-fitted and long enough to cover a man’s waist. The shoulders of the vest are a key component, which tells us how well it fits an individual and should lie flat against the body. While wearing a vest with a suit the v-shape of the vest should be visible and not hidden by the lapels of the suit.  The bottom button of a vest should always be left undone.  These are traditions that not everyone may be aware of but should be followed and respected to the utmost. Vest have been apart of men’s fashion for years, with very little change in structure and design. Adding a few carefully selected vest could lead to a wide range of options to make you look #SharpCrispClean

When a tradition gathers enough strength to go on for centuries, you don’t just turn it off one day.
