My sweetie needs a new vest. Button-downs totally work with his body type, and now that I'm having most of his work shirts properly laundered, he's grown quite adept at putting together stylish and appealing combinations. Here's hoping the days of "But they're all shades of green! What do you MEAN they don't go together?" are in the past.

Thing is, there's a serious dearth of button-down vests out there. A few years past, in a similar waistcoat drought, I purchased a pretty cool vest from this site. Considering how much Don loves it, how much he still wears it and how well it fits, I'm thinking the time has come to give them my custom once more. Thing is, there are a whole lot of options. I've narrowed it down, but I'd really like your input.

Now, keep in mind most of Don's vests are dark (black, grey, dark brown tweed) and, if there is a pattern, it's fairly understated. Going a bit snazzier, while not necessary, is all to the good. Given that, what choices do YOU like?

1. Shawl collar, pale blue with swirls

2. Also blue, this time with stripes

3. Red with fun pattern, nice details

4. Red again. Classic cut, excellent fabric

5. Stripey red. I'm quite fond of this one

6. More stripey; VERY different from anything he already owns

Ok ALL of these are fantastic, but I know that is not helpful so I've ranked these a bit according to what they conjure in my imagination along with what I can most see Don sporting!
Tied for 1st Place-#2 blue stripes- this vest is sort of like if Sherlock Holmes and a Victorian James Bond had the same tailor. #3 Red Paisley- this one is regal, classic and perfect for any festive gathering.

2nd Place-#1 the swirly blue- this is a prince charming vest without a doubt!

3rd Place-#5 I love this one, it makes me think of old fashioned soda shops and bicycles built for two!

4th Place-#6 I am actually a huge fan of tasteful holiday themed accessories, and this vest hits the nail on the head! The perfect thing for the season!

5th Place-#4 red asian print- this is a super snazzy pants vest perfect for a hot date night!

All 6 are fantastic!
