Vests, which cover the torso and leave the arms free, flatter most men’s body types. They’re designed to draw in the waist, trim the torso and create a sleek, elegant silhouette. Unsurprisingly, vests originated in an era famous for its sartorial opulence – the 17th century, when King Charles II of England introduced them as part of correct dress after seeing the vests worn by Persian aristocracy in the court of Shah Abbas. Fortunately the vest is one of the only remnants of 17th century fashion still going today (although Charles’ billowing centre parted curls enjoyed a worldwide revival in the ‘80s).

Today, vests are worn with three piece suits, traditional morning suits and on their own as part of smart-casual and day wear. There are a number of different styles of men’s vests. Double breasted is considered to be more formal and ideal for weddings, while single breasted is more contemporary and suitable for the office and evening wear. We stock vests in a wide spectrum of colors perfect for matching to any wedding color scheme, from wintery reds and greens, to luxurious golds and summery ivories.

With smart-wear currently on-trend, men with their finger on the fashion pulse will love our durable tweed vests which can be easily styled down for casual wear, or paired with one of our tweed bow ties for a quirky look at formal events. Men’s fashion icons including David Beckham, Justin Timberlake, Daniel Craig and David Gandy have all demonstrated how adding a vest without a matching jacket can create a contemporary look that is both smart and stylish. Street fashion in recent years has seen vests worn with casual t-shirts, jeans, vintage neckties and casual footwear like trainers, biker boots, desert boots and loafers. Find your ideal style here at Dobell.
