What is the difference between a vest and a waist coat? 'Nothing' is the correct answer. Americans call the sleeveless piece a 'vest' where the Brits call the same thing a 'waist coat'. Aaron Marino of alpha m. goes over a simple way to incorporate a vest in your everyday wear.
Wear the vest as a style statement-- it will be the star of the outfit. The fabric is the determining factor of whether the vest is dressy or casual. Casual fabrics are corduroy (incredibly sexy!), denim (super casual), and leather. Refined fabrics define the dressier vests. The vests add a layer of detail and dimension. Alpha guides how to build a balanced vest ensemble:
- Coordinate your selected vest with a button-up shirt from Modern Tailor
- Then coordinate with appropriate jeans.
- The shoes put the finishing touch on the outfit.
- Throw a tie on for another added dimension.
