Waistcoat

22 Feb , 2009  

Waistcoats were an integral part of any suit until half a century ago. They may be either single or double breasted, and also these should have the lowest button opened. Visually they tend to redirect the attention from the stomach towards the tie and collar of the shirt. The greatest disadvantage of waist coats is that they hide a lot of the shirt’s fabric and make you more traditionally styled. With a single column of two buttons that are placed quite low on the jacket, more of the shirt and tie can be seen and enjoyed. This often gives someone’s appearance a fresher look.
