Why The Waistcoat?

Did you know that by adding one piece to your wardrobe, you could create at least 8 different new outfits?  Did you know that this piece can work perfectly for casual and formal settings? I bet you’re wondering what this magical fashion item could be.  Rebels, we want to introduce (or reintroduce) you to the waistcoat.

A waist coast (or vest) is often seen worn as the stylish third piece to your favorite suit.  For the best fit, make sure the waistcoat fits snug against your body, without being too tight.  There usually is an adjuster in the back, so you can accommodate if it's feeling a little tight. Lengthwise, the bottom should cover the waistband of your pants, and the bottom of your shirt.

On top of looking polished, a waistcoat adds an extra layer of warmth if you’re dealing with cooler weather.  Pair your waistcoat with a suit, tie and pocket square for a layered, formal look.

To keep the look a little more casual, you can pair your waistcoat with a long sleeved henley, or a classic button down with dark jeans or chinos. 

Rebels, a well fitted waistcoat can add style and sophistication to your favorite outfits.  Schedule an appointment to create your perfect 3-piece suit that will also give you so many stylish outfit combinations. Trust us on this one :).
