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

My first choice is #2 -the color is bright but not costume-ish, and the points lengthen and slim.

ROFFLE. When I first moved in, Rob's work wardrobe was exclusively khaki pants (heinously pleated, and mostly that really ugly Dickies shade of mustard khaki) white buttondowns, ratty blue oxfords, and khaki-ish colored shirts that should never go with khaki pants. It took quite some time (and subtle prodding) to transform his wardrobe, into the nice selection it is now.
