Men’s Vintage Inspired Vests

A vintage man without a vest is incomplete. The pre 1900 and early 20th century embraced the collared vest with a round shawl collar or notch lapel collar.  Patterns were in fashion with stripes, plaids and checks making the biggest impact. By the 1930s, lapels were disappearing and the classic V neck 6 button vest appeared. Solid colors and thin pinstripes matched suits or not. The contrasting vest in double breasted style was very dapper back then as it is today.

Pullover sweater vests were worn in winter and spring for sporting clothes (like golf or tennis) or as casual fashions for trend setting young men. Thick white or ivory cables knit vests are the icon of preppy style. Argyle sweater vests were also an ivy league style especially with golfers.

Add one of these vintage style vests inspired by the fashions of the Victorian – 1950s era to your shirt and trousers for an instant vintage look.
