Traditionally, vests were worn under the shirts to protect them from sweat and deodorant stains. You can strike the perfect balance of age-old tradition and new-age style if you accessorise your regular fitted vests and pair them with a slightly loose plain or flannel shirt. Leave all the buttons open, of course! The layering combination is a great pick for casual meetups with friends and family. Most vests will be produced in plain white, smooth cotton with no discernible texture. We recommend affordably and expertly crafted colourful neo-skin bamboo vests made with 93% bamboo rayon and 7% spandex to ensure comfort, support, and longevity.

To give your vintage vest a stylish vibe, pair it with a pair of linen shorts for a casual day out. Throw in a funky pair of slippers and sunglasses to the mix and you are good to go for that quick shopping trip to the mall. Grab a few cold beverages on our way out and call it a day—with style.
