The re-invention of the waistcoat as a hot fashion item is mainly due to the rock and roll influence of British Indie Bands.
Rock & Roll Waistcoats
Once the preserve of the business banker, the waistcoat is back! Now worn ‘as you like it’ with jeans, T-shirts, a crazy floral shirt. Button it up, leave it open anything goes.
With celebrity waistcoat wearers including David Beckham & Pete Doherty, the waistcoat is well and truly in vogue! Don’t be surprised if the three piece suit emerges on the strength of it. We only have to see Steve McQueen in the ‘Thomas Crown Affair’ to realise what a cool look this can be.
So thanks to this the waistcoat is now firmly placed in a cool corner, we have various versions from lightweight knitted to the classic cinch back button up.
