The Ongoing Trend Of Double Breasted Vests

Double Breasted Vests The Mens Double Breasted Vests were quite in fashion especially in the 1950s. It was once obligatory for all men to war these at the formal events. This style became popular since it keeps the body warm due to its double layer. This is the reason why it was a decorative as well as functional piece of attire.

It is even capable of hiding the shirt front. The detachable collar and cuffs also came into existence because of these double breasted vests. Even though it is a matter of personal taste, this vest style has remained in fashion and continues to do so even today. These vests even add on to the color distinction. It is believed that a morning suit without the vest is like a tuxedo without the bow tie. For the morning suits these are more of a necessity than just an important accessory.

Elucidating slim suits
The double breasted vests even come with two styles- back vent and vent less. It is a matter of personal choice as which one to wear. Modern men however prefer the vent less style more. There are various textures, fabric and color to choose from.

  • Morning vests reveal less of the shirt front and tie as compared to the evening one. So if you wish to show off your shirt go for the evening vest.
