Vests can be a somewhat polarizing issue– do they make you look boorish? Like you should be sporting a handlebar mustache? Like your old English professor? Well, here’s the secret, both to vests and allegedly-polarizing clothing items in general: they are what you make of them. But if you’re fearful, this number by Mark Mcnairy might be a particularly good starting place. The juxtaposition of different fabrics keeps the garment from looking too stuffy, while the usage of classic menswear prints and a basic silhouette prevents it from looking juvenile. Dress it up (we imagine it as a cheeky inside joke with a more conservative suit) or dress it down (it’d also make a nicely punk rock addition to more casual attire). Just remember: there’s nothing to fear but… oh, you know. In any case, get it here.
