14 Dec A Tip on Getting Your Waistcoat Right
Try your best not to look like a waiter. This can be done in three easy steps: one, go for seasonal materials such as tweed/corduroy for winter and cotton/whipcord for summer. This avoids that shiny polyester appearance that looks so tragic in any light. Two, avoid any unnecessary details such as fancy lining or bizarre affectations like pocket watches.
You’re a stylish gentleman, not a Steam Punk. And three, simply pair it with items that don’t make you look like a waiter – i.e. anything but black trousers, unless of course it came with them as part of a suit.
