Mastering your Outfit

Many times in life, a gentleman would come across situations that demand a dash of boldness when putting together a great outfit. Waistcoat and jeans, if done well, is an ensemble that will definitely give you a stylish edge, without jeopardizing elegance.

Choose the Occasion and Dress Accordingly to Each Season

Being conscious of the dress code required for certain occasions is paramount when deciding how to pair your waistcoat with jeans.

If in the end, it all comes together -from shoulder to toes- you will be in the spotlight.

Make sure your waistcoat lies flat on your shoulders, has high armholes to give you freedom of movement and doesn’t have an excess of fabric.
