Aaron Marino of alpha m. talks about the do's and do not's of wearing a men's vest. Some of vests have lapels and some vests are made from various materials such as velvet, polyester, cotton, wool, and cashmere. Four options are discussed.
- First, the sweater vest can be worn with jeans, shorts, pants, chinos, under suit jacket. It's incredibly versatile. The more luxurious fabrics are dressier.
- Next, the casual vest can be inexpensive and not made with a dressy fabric. These look great with jeans or a sport coat over it.
- The third option is the vest with the lapel. This is a dressier option. You don't want to wear a sport coat over this vest as it will look funky with double lapel. Looks best with slacks and wool pant.
- The forth option is the three piece suit's vest . Wear it only with that ensemble and don't break up the set. Always dry clean all pieces together to keep the fabrics matching.
