Rated 5 out of 5 by daniel459 Fantastic vest for the money
The first thing you notice when you put this on is the tapered, tremendous fit. It just perfectly drapes over your shoulders and chest as if it was made to order. Lands nicely just past the belt-line and stays there. Fabric looks like a million bucks and could easily be mistaken for a 500 dollar Italian hand sewn piece. This vest is strictly for the slimmer fitting guy, I'm 5'9 155 pounds and the size 40 fits like a glove though I normally wear a 38 blazer.
Pair this with a paisley pocket square, pressed white shirt, silk tie, and contrasting burgundy color wool slacks and this vest simply shines like nobody's business. The picture does this vest no justice as it looks drowned out by the pants identical color scheme. Rule of thumb I have is to always wear vests with contrasting colored pants to give yourself a little pop.
Back strap is functional and easy to adjust. Lightweight and extremely versatile to wear as grey goes with virtually anything you throw at it.
Liked this vest so much I bought all three colors. No down-sides I can think of other than you will need to wear it very carefully as it is quite thin and prone to tears if abused. Structure wise, the vests fabric feels solid and keeps its shape when worn all day. Bottom line is the vests strong point is its tailored fit and how it hugs your torso flawlessly.
Overall- a sharp, versatile, and timeless vest for all seasons.
Order 1 size up, this is a slim fitting garment.
