They are always too long on me and cannot (or rarely) be shortened the same way a carefully chosen sportcoat can be shortened an inch.
If you really look at most guys that are wearing a vest often the vest is just too long and bunches up or too short and looks like a flac-jacket.
My first truly bespoke suit I buy will be a vested suit. More than just looking so elegant it makes the whole shirt-meets-pant area look much smoother than without the vest. Like I mentioned in a recent post, this is why I like to wear a cardigan or double-zip sweater under a jacket.
Also I bet if you lined up 5 guys of different sizes and put them all in a CORRECTLY-fitted vest and pants they would all look 5 to 10 pounds thinner.
I think men think of a vest like a modern corset but if they calculated how much more beer they could drink and then just pull in the gut with a vest…well, maybe Corona needs to look into a product extension.
Anyway, Carlo again looks superb and endlessly elegant.
