Vest Over Blazer

A Sartorialist friend on mine just got back from Milan and mentioned the puffy vest over jackets and suits is even more noticeable than usual right now.

    Maybe because Europe has been having the coldest Winter on record?

    I remember when we could look to Italians to do the right thing sartorially. Next they’ll be wearing garish coloured neon winter coats over their suits.

    I’m sorry, but the Milanese only look “normal” in their own city. Next you’ll be suggesting that we wear Guru flower T-Shirts and John Richmond “RICH” jeans.

    Not thanks.

    he’s actually wearing two vests (puffy nylon vest and sweater vest).

    in europe they wear the quilted jacket or vest. there’s a huge difference between puffy and quilted as far as style.

    please, once Ariel Foxman double air kisses his approval, you won’t be able to find a spare puffy vest in this city, not from prada to patagonia.

    A vest is a most practical layering piece in a cold climate. I lived for many years in a much colder place than NYC and saw vests worn to great effect both over and under outerwear. One friend would wear a leather vest over a sporty jacket. Another would wear a contrasting, hip length down vest under a short down jacket. Both looked good and stayed warm.

    Folks keep their houses cooler in such places, so you’ve got your vest to wear indoors should you feel chilled.

    my question is, can the girls do this just as well? – the exterior puffy vest (close fitted) over a jacket or coat. I’ve pick up a wee one and have been trying to work it in somehow. harder trick than it looks since the proportions have to be right.

    find us some pics showing it done right, oh please, sartorialist?
