A Lot Of Lines


[Down Vest] Aquascutum [Shirt] Dsquared2 [Tie] Ben Sherman [Gloves] Bottega Veneta
[Shoes] Loake [Sunglasses] Dior

In the winter layering up is easy. All I have to do is choose one of my overcoats and grab a scarf and I’m instantly prepared to fight off the cold. However, when the spring comes it becomes more challenging. I know there are a variety of light weight spring jackets and coats out there such as the mac and cotton bomber, but today I will present to you another outwear garment that is far too often overlooked. The down vest is a great alternative to heavier coats when the spring time comes. It, just like an overcoat, can easily be worn with a suit and tie, and it really gives off a young and modern vibe. This particular one from Aquascutum is in a dark grey shade but there are plenty of bright and colorful versions out there that look just as great. For the rest of the outfit I decided to stay within the grey family and wear a classic wool windowpane grey suit and accessorize with a grey glen check tie and grey gloves that I tucked away in my vest pocket to add a little detail to the outfit. What do you all think about this look?

  2. Never seen anyone put a vest like this over a suit, it actually looks great, I think because you stuck with colours and patterns that blend well together, very nice! I like the design on your jacket and trousers...very smart :)

  7. I really like this dark grey vest. It adds a bit of youthful/playful note to this look and yet it is very true to your sophisticated sense of style.

    The lines on the suit and the layering really make this outfit superb. It stands out but it still very smart and elegant.

    I do agree completely about the vests. They're insanely practical and as you have proven, they can look quite sophisticated and professional.
