Where to buy men's waistcoats

In 1666, King Charles II introduced the waistcoat, and men's fashion was never the same again. While his waistcoat was plain and straight-cut, the waistcoat underwent a change over the centuries to the fitted waistcoats of the late 1700s and today. There is more than one style of waistcoat. So, when do you know which one to use and where do you buy them?

Formal

Mens' waistcoats are expected at formal occasions such as weddings, the Ascot, or even cruises or proms. The wedding waistcoats can be in dove, buff, and pale shades. Black waistcoats are reserved for mourning or certain occasions held during the day in London. The construction can be double or single breasted. If the wedding is during the day, then morning dress requires a waistcoat of the same colour as the coat. With less formal morning dress, the waistcoat follows the same colour scheme as the wedding waistcoat. Waistcoats in the formal style are available at retailers like Marc Wallace, Henry Herbet, Henry Poole, Tom Sawyer Waistcoats, Waistcoats Direct, Wedding Waistcoats and more. The tailors who make the morning coat and trousers will make the waistcoat as well. The waistcoats for the Ascot and the Prom are similar, so you will be able to buy those at the same places as the formal waistcoats.

Work

Work is another place where you can wear a waistcoat. The three-piece suit is considered as the proper wear for work. This suit, created by Charles II and refined by Beau Brummell, is similar to the morning wear. The waistcoat should match the jacket. Three pieces suits are available at retailers like Suits Men or Moss. You can also get your suit custom made by tailors, which would help to ensure the proper fit, such as Cad the Dandy, Anderson & Sheppard, Henry Poole, 40 Saville Row and more.

Casual

Casual waistcoats can be of different fabrics and colours. The fabrics can be of silk, wool, worsted flannel, herringbone, plain, patterned and more. These waistcoats are available at Tom Sawyer Waistcoats, Waistcoats Direct, and more.

Fun

The waistcoats for fun can be worn for causal occasions. These waistcoats can be in multiple colours, patterns, tie dye, and even in the pattern of a Union Jack. You can buy these waistcoats at Waistcoats Direct, Tom Sawyer and more.

How to be a gangster?

Since the 1980's gangster wear has been very popular and relevant to the society and by being a gangster people used to think that they would be socially accepted by many people. Being a gangster by the way you're dressed is very easy but trying too hard won't do you good; just be yourself as that is the main ingredient for making yourself dress or look like a gangster. People stereotype gangsters a lot and think that they are bad people getting themselves into the trouble with the law, but in some cases people just want to fit in.
