A waistcoat is one of the garments of the wardrobe, both male, which are most used for official purpose. Also, we can find the waistcoats ideal for dressing in the seasons of autumn and spring.
The perfect waistcoat stockings
The first thing we have to consider is with what we are going to wear the waistcoat. That is, if we are going to wear only on special occasions with a “full” wardrobe underneath. That is to say, to dress it with a suit or a dress underneath. Or it can be a waistcoat, which we can say daily, that we will wear with “light” garments. This detail is important for choosing a correct size and avoid that the waistcoat is too fair or too loose.
The length of the waistcoat usually suffers the “dictates” of fashion and is usually quite variable. A long classic waistcoat, it is always elegant and does not go out of style, although there are designers who want to “retire”. Now they wear waistcoats so short that they can be confused with parkas, trencas, and etcetera. A good waistcoat should not arrive long at knee height – and there are even somewhat longer models.
Its length should cover the entire wrist and one or two centimeters from the beginning of the hand. A little trick can be when we check that the length of the sleeve does not show any part of the garment that we wear under the waistcoat. A waistcoat of correct measures to our physique should not show anything of what we have underneath.
As in any other garment, the shoulder of the waistcoat must fit or “marry” perfectly with our shoulder. That is, they must be at the same height, not a little high or a shoulder dropped below ours.
How to wear a waistcoat
Although the waistcoat is a “long” garment should not wear waistcoats with great flight that we are too long – also we can shorten the figure. There are some really elegant models that may be the exceptions to this rule.
As for buttoning, flaps, pockets, etc., each style and season may vary. But a classic waistcoat is usually with wide flaps and only two pockets. There are models from the famous waistcoat companies to others of military style. But we are already in the field of fashion that is our field.
