    Show us your waistcoats/Vests?

    I thought this might be worth doing, prompted by consideration of my latest purchase (first photograph), so here you go:

    Morning Waistcoats:



    I like this one - London tailored.




    Savile row - black herringbone, and note the detail below - an extra button set into the lapel to keep it closed:



    Another grey one:



    Sand/cream/light buff this time - possibly some sort of washed silk? It feels a little too slippery for linen:



    This is an interesting one; I suspect that it is technically an evening waistcoat, but I am thinking of trying it during the day, as part of a morning coat/frock coat ensemble:



    A single-breasted morning waistcoat with notched lapels:



    A braided and slipped waistcoat, also see the detail below:





    A simple waistcoat in "Jersey weave" - would work as part of a half morning dress/stroller ensemble or in a more countrified setting:



    Some country ones next.

    Anthony.

    Very nice If I may make a request? I'd love to see these worn, I adore a man in a well fitted vest and shirt sleeves; the vest is form fitting and the sleeves are full and he looks like a well dressed pirate!

    Big fan of vests here!

    The vests/waistcoats in this thread are *extremely stylish*. I gotta get my hands on some of these!

    I'm afraid you are in the minority, Josephine. I like my waistcoats (vests) to be paint-like in fit and people always say that they are too form fitting in a man my age. You can't win! Needless to say, I ignore them.

    This is a vintage British backless DB morning waiscoat that I wore in my wedding:



    I have since sold it to another FL member, because I got this one:



    A fully backed vintage Brooks Brothers grey wool morning vest. This one motivates me to not gain weight. Or breathe deeply when I'm wearing it, for that matter.




    This is also Brooks, but modern. Tan linen.




    Cream linen, from Alan Flusser's Stein Mart line. The fit on this one is pretty poor, IMO.




    Brown suede, from Land's End. I wear this one primarily with tweeds and such.
