How to pull off Vests guide

TRG would have to be honest here; he personally hasn’t worn a vest and still prefers to call them waistcoats. But he knows how to wear it if he decided to pick one up in the future.

1. As part of a suit

• The three piece suit

2. With a long sleeve shirt

• You can throw away the suit jacket but keep the tie on. A good substitute if you feel warm with a coat.

• If you are going for the casual look you can lose the tie. This goes best with casual shoes and jeans. Lapels add a bit of formality on the usual waistcoat.

• Make sure it fits snugly, no loose waistcoats

3. With a t-shirt
This look is not for everyone but some guys do pull it off. Some basic pointers:
• A bit harder to pull off so no graphic tees
• Wear it unbuttoned
• Keep it simple

Right on

Double Denim

I recently recommended a denim jacket here and some might wonder why. Well denim jackets are indeed classic jackets and as long as you keep it nicely fitted, dark, and simple, it will last for years. Rebellious, in an understated way.

Just don’t wear jeans with it. Even if your jeans are black or dark blue without any distress and wash. The only exceptions are cowboys and people going to an 80’s themed costume party.

Affliction Clothing

Question: What does TRG think of Affliction T-shirts?

Answer: The same with Ed Hardy t-shirts.
Affliction t-shirts are becoming the latest disease affecting every street, club and bar in Metro Manila. For the rebellious gentlemen: Avoid them at all costs.
