WAISTCOATS – LIMITED TO FORMAL WEAR?
When anyone walks into a room, they expect to make a notable impression.
Let’s be honest, when we all look at a man wearing a waistcoat you can’t help but sense an aura of success and pride radiating off him.
That’s an instant elevation of your look – five bonus points for a well-dressed man.
American fashion designer and film director, Tom Ford once said, “Dressing well is a form of good manners.”
A waistcoat can accomplish that for anyone.
Waistcoats are often classified as formal wear. It is the epitome of style and dignity, landing a flawless finish to any outfit.
Here are two ways to jazz up your waistcoats.
CASUAL WITH CLASS
By reading this you are probably wondering how to go about piecing an outfit together with a waistcoat. A waistcoat is conventionally worn as part of a three-piece suit. But it can also be a great item to wear on its own. To make this work, just simply match the colour, material and pattern of the waistcoat with the rest of the outfit.
For a birthday party or a gathering with friends at a rooftop bar, match it with a pair of jeans. This is a more stylish way of showing off the waistcoat as a centrepiece, especially without a suit. Mix it up and become more experimental with colour and pattern. What’s better than having the freedom to work with textures that you like?
For instance, a checkered tweed waistcoat can be matched with dark navy blue jeans and a blue checkered shirt. This gives a very well-refined smart and casual look. Mr Specter, grey waistcoat will be the perfect choice for this! To make it more dramatic, you can opt for a shirt that matches the waistcoat. There is a variety of tailored shirts in Singapore. You will be able to find more at the Made Suits online shop with our range of men’s tailored suits in Singapore.
The most traditional way to wear a waistcoat is as part of a suit ensemble. It embodies everlasting style and lends a touch of sophistication to the wearer.

The little details count! Remember to leave the jacket opened for a playful peek of your waistcoat as you go about your day.
To complete your smart ensemble, it is important to make sure the waistcoat fits well. The choice of material also plays a part in the way the waistcoat looks and feel. Some common options are cotton, wool or linen.
