There are several types of men’s waistcoat:
- Classic (for a three-piece suit);
- In free style (denim, leather, knitted);
Let’s talk about how to choose each of the types of men’s waistcoat, more.
How to Choose a Classic Men’s waistcoat
Wearing classical waistcoat in Pakistan is not common. To facilitate your choice, here are few simple tips.
In the classic version, the waistcoat comes with a double-breasted jacket. If your suit was sold without a waistcoat, it’s better not to experiment on your own.
Classic waistcoats are of two types:
Closed (with closed back): For sewing such waistcoats there are several types of fabric
On the back: lining (the same as the jacket with which it is worn), on the front – more dense. The neckline of these waistcoats is quite small – strictly under a tie.
Open (assuming openness of the back). Such a waistcoat is easy to recognize not only by the lack of a backrest (it is replaced by a narrow harness with an elastic band or a strap on the waist line), but also on a deep neckline.
Remember: an open black waistcoat cannot be worn with a black butterfly and dress coat – it’s a form of waiters. As a solemn option, you should choose a white waistcoat and a white butterfly.
Traditionally, the waistcoat is worn with suspenders, but without a strap. However, today the classic waistcoat is a necessary attribute of the wardrobe of many moods that easily change the rules to their liking, so wearing a waistcoat with a belt in our time is not uncommon.
How to Choose a Classic Men’s waistcoat in a Free-style
This group includes jeans and leather waistcoat, as well as the dream of all Soviet engineers – a knitted waistcoat. To choose such a thing is simple: take what you like, and wear it with pleasure: that style is called free. The only rule is: do not neglect quality: the denim should be dense, the skin is natural, and the thread, from which the waistcoat is bound, consists of at least 85 percent wool.
Remember: a cheap substandard thing, even if it looks good when buying, will soon lose its neat appearance and you will have to say goodbye either to your desire to look attractive, or with it.
