Indulge in the dapper with menswear like the plaid vest. Subtle striping vertically and horizontally intersects in a handsome plaid. Enjoy shades of gray. Light stripes keep a vest almost singularly toned, but create plaid in the texture. When light and dark intersect, charcoal shades take form. Go deeper and darker when gray runs against strips of black. Enhance with the mysterious tone, running a thick strip of black around the trim of an otherwise plaid vest.
The features define each vest. Create a modern edge with zippered pockets; rock three to offset the classicism of plaid with a hint of asymmetry. Even out with two or four equally spaced pockets, abandoning zippers for the simplicity of slits. Settle betwixt the two, combining hip asymmetry with subtle slit pockets. Employ the same dashing quality reminiscent of a sweater vest when solid trim enters the scheme—highlighting pockets and the overall slim fitting shape.
Refine a look even further by pairing a plaid vest with its matching blazer. Don’t stop at a two-bottom blazer; step up styling even more. Add one more garment into the mix for a debonair three-piece suit. Dress in slim fit pants in the same pattern of plaid, for an appearance that can’t be beat. Discover the menswear world at Macy’s.
