Where Have All The Vests Gone?

I am not sure why I am all of a sudden smitten with men’s vests.  But, I find them while worn casually, to be a really enticing adornment to a mans attire.  I think it’s one of the most underused, yet BEST accessories that a dude can wear in a dressed down sitch or a dressed up one as well!

$245. Hugo Boss
