From badge-bearing Old West sheriffs to the funky waistcoats of Mumford & Sons, the men’s vest has a long history of combining fashion with utility. During the cooler temperatures of fall, it adds an extra layer of warmth when you don’t want to wear a coat. And when combined with a jacket, a contrasting vest color or pattern can make for a striking fashion statement, even if you’re not ironically sporting complex hipster facial hair. Make sure vests cover the waistband of your pants – they’re not called “waistcoats” for nothing – and allow for plenty of space in the arms. We browsed Amarillo’s retailers for some of our favorite vest options. These will help you stay warm and look great, whether you’re a businessman, or an old-timey barkeep.
