Men’s Vests

When shopping for men’s vests, you must be aware of the different types available. You also need to know what styles are going to suit your body. This guide will take you through the various factors you need to consider when selecting these clothes.

What are the different ways to wear a vest?
  • Informally - These clothes can be worn outside the workplace, generally in informal environments. They can be used to complement any outfit you have. You can pair them with T-shirts and jeans to create an elegant and relaxed look.
  • As part of a 3-piece suit - The vest is a very integral part of a 3-piece business suit. The colour, pattern, and material should match the rest of your outfit to give it a formal look.
  • Business casual - Although casual business vests are typically meant to be worn with a 3-piece suit, many people still pair them with informal clothes. These vests can even be worn in the office without a jacket or coat.
What different types of vests are available?

There are several types of vests available, and each is meant to be worn in a different setting. They include:

  • Formal vests - These are often worn as part of a 3-piece suit or even with a semi-casual outfit. They come in a variety of solid colours and simple patterns that easily match the suits.
  • Fashion or informal vests - These are mostly worn with T-shirts and jeans instead of dress shirts and trousers. They can be designed to match prevailing fashion trends.
  • Cut-offs - These are made by cutting off the arms of a jacket. They are mostly denim, and some have patches for designs. These clothes are commonly associated with bikers.
  • Sweater vests - These are important as pullovers in cold weather. They are considered casual wear, and most of the time they are worn around the house.
  • Fleece vests - These are light and soft. They are commonly worn in cool, dry weather. You can wear fleece vests with a jacket for extra protection from the cold.
  • Leather vests - These are mostly worn by bikers and protect riders from strong winds.
  • Tweed vests - These are tailored with either 4 or 5 buttons.
What materials are used to make men’s vests?

  • Wool
  • Cotton
  • Silk
  • Microfiber
  • Leather

How are vests supposed to fit?

The shoulders should always lie flat on the body and below the collar point. Vests that are designed to wear under other clothing should also be thin so that when worn with a suit, they are entirely hidden. The length should be up to the waist and not any lower.
