The Sweater as Waist Coat

Hybrids are interesting creatures they usually don't work. Take the mule, for example. Yet, when they do they really push the envelope.

Here I have a sweater vest that is made like a regular waistcoat. It has the peaked bottom, buttons, and even is pinstriped. This waistcoat although a sweater vest, it is still a waistcoat. I plan on wearing it like a waistcoat. So, that means I'll be wearing it under a jacket and with a pocket watch. The surprise with this garment is that Ralph Lauren could execute something this daring and yet still conservative in nature especially with their Rugby line.

Check it out.

I have a nice charcoal sweater vest I picked up at a thrift shop the other year, and while I love the contrasting vest look, I'm not sure it would really go with any of my suits.

Wear it with a casual suit instead. If not a blazer and chinos looks well with sweaters. Also, layering with tweed odd coats or suits is a must for sweater vests.
