    They look pretty nice with a suit, I own a few, but because they are pretty formal I don’t wear them as often as I would like. But you shouldn’t wear them with a belt and always with a jacket.

    yes i own a couple. i will likely never own any more. le fashion rules have soured me on them and it just isnt ever cold enough indoors for layers.

    I wore one a few times but I got made fun of by randoms so I stopped wearing it.
    >Inb4 yeah yeah heck randoms, you do you anon
    If random people who I have otherwise not offended think what I’m wearing looks so bad they feel confident enough to say it to my face in public then I’m taking that piece out of rotation

      this proves mockery works … always make fun of weirdos with hooks in their noses, pink hair, and other anti-social crap … we all need to do our part to kill off irritating fads

        its not just if you yourself are mocked. if you catch a glimpse of numerous others that fail to pull it off, you dont want to be associated with them, and drop the look.

    I don’t own any and prefer 2 piece suits. Buy a high end suit and they look good, but I don’t like the aesthetics without the jacket.

    Sadly most people buy cheap shit and end up looking like a waiter.

    I own a couple and I don’t think I have ever worn them. Like other people have said, the fashion rules restrict when they can be worn, and I feel they look silly if you wear them outside those rules.

    I could see them being cool if you were like a rancher on your horse, but otherwise can’t really see it.

      what are these rules exactly? I usually wear them when it’s a holiday, seems the most appropriate. there was a guy at the office who wore a vest every day, and nobody cared, so there’s that

        people have already said no belts and always a jacket.
        like jackets, the bottom most button remains undone. and the shirt isnt supposed to be visible in the bottom gap. so that limits you to tailored because where are you going to find one with a second last button that goes down far enough.
        and then most people will think you look like you belong at a wedding or bartending.

    i own a few sweater vests
    thats already kind of dorky to wear on its own, wearing a waistcoat on its own is way too far

      Yeah but then you’re just wearing a shirt and tie. I still think the look looks better with a vest, especially if you have a tie on.

      Adding a question to the thread, what about casual vests or a vest made of wool and not orphaned from a 3 piece.

      the more texture to a material the more casual, so that can only help it be more acceptable to wear

      this guy’s fits always worked well without a jacket

      the more i scroll down the image the more my mind jumps to bartender.

    Ultimately just too formal and situational. If you want layers due to weather there are better options. If you’re wearing it because you like how it looks better than your shirt, why not just buy a better shirt? Ironically the mention of suspenders seems like the only good reason to wear one: if you prefer wearing suspenders and want to cover them with your vest.
