Vests Have Always Been Popular
The vest has a long history in men’s and women’s fashion. These wardrobe stables date back to the early 14th century when neither a respectable man nor woman was seen in public without one. Slowly it began to lose favor in the mid-20th century and was considered a relic by the early 1980’s.
Back in the Limelight
It seems vests have lost their relic status as today you see it on younger men in jeans and even a hat. Another clothing item making a comeback, vests come in a variety of colors and styles.
Of course, It’s very common for vests to be worn with suits. Some suits off the rack offer vest and any custom suit can be ordered with a vest. Next time you’re buying a new suit, see how it pairs with a vest.
