About Double Breasted Vests
When a suit is too formal and a tie alone does not cut it, a double-breasted vest can save the day — or night. A double-breasted garment is one with two vertical rows of buttons, traditionally a total of six, that cover a front flap that generously overlaps the bottom flap. With countless styles, colors, and fabrics, there is a look for any occasion. A sophisticated double-breasted black vest with front pockets looks great over a button-down shirt of any color. A gray vest with pinstripes looks sharp for the office, and a warm rust-colored wool vest pairs well with jeans and loafers for a casual vibe. Double-breasted women's vests come in casual denim, feminine floral designs, or tailored suit-style wool for business meetings. As opposed to single-breasted vests, which have flaps that meet in the middle of the torso, double-breasted vests add an extra layer of warmth and an undeniable dose of formality to an ensemble.
