How to Wear a Vest For Men

The post is in collaboration with Jacamo. 

I genuinely feel sorry for men when it comes to clothes shopping. Women have ten times the options at way more competitive price points. For men, unless you can afford to shop at Harold’s you’re going to have to get a little creative. Enter the vest. It’s the perfect in between seasons piece that will effortlessly add an air of awesome to your ensemble.

    I dunno that I would feel sorry for men. It’s easy for them to find clothes that suit them because nearly every cut is always in production. In women’s clothes if the cut or style you want isn’t in fashion then it probably doesn’t exist. Guys tend not to have that problem.

    Granted, I have a much different style then you do. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places?

    Vested men though? Pretty much always a plus. Though I prefer the tailored vest like the pic you have of Johnny Depp. Yum.
