A nice Waistcoat
The waistcoat never leaves people indifferent. Some would think it’s ugly, some it is too much and some other will think it’s a must-have. The most difficult with waistcoats is to wear it with taste, which could give an awesome render. The most informed would recommend wearing it with rigid-collar shirts only. Many people like waiscoats as a fashion item and see it like a ostentatious sign of elegance, but still can’t pass the purchasing hurdle.
A good waistcoat gathers different elements:
- To be the appropritate size (needless to say)
- To be in the same color and fabric than your suit (or maybe you handle the color palette like a king)
- The first button should jut out from the jacket (the buttonhole area should be longer than the jacket’s one. Ex : 2buttons jacket + 3 buttons waistcoat).
- It should always remain closed, whether you keep your jacket open or not.
From then, I have found cool mens waistcoats from the Australian brand Tarocash meeting all the requirements for a perfect casual piece : nice fabric, nice cut, nice details and various available colorways for an affordable price. More info at http://www.tarocash.com.au/
