Gilets, Bodywarmers & Down Vests

Started this discussion. Last reply by David F. Mar 31. 21 Replies

I'm a 6' 2" guy who likes wearing gilets, I own 5 in total. I'm just looking for advice though on what other people wear with their gilets so I can try out some new looks.

"Fitted Polos work fine.  I also like some Patagonia shirts.  The shirts should always be tucked in.  Except when they should not.  Which only really applies to shirts with a square bottom and only when they are not buttoned up.…"

"Ah cool, nice one. What style shirt do you go for? I wanna try out wearing a shirt with a vest casually but not sure what shirt to get."

"For casual my defaults are a shirt with a collar, dark blue jeans and brogues or oxfords.    Add that vest and you have a light warm layer and a place for your phone.   I work in IT so I can ware it to work also.  I just…"

"Ah thanks, yeah I think this is a better look. Sounds like you dress classier than I do haha I don't put in very much effort. I really wanna try the casual shirt and puffy vest look, not sure what shirt to get though..."

"Yeah I'm more of a fan of the puffy look, although I'm not a stranger to wearing waistcoats or vests with light  padding. It might sound weird but I prefer having less on my arms."

"Have you looked at non-puffy vests?  Or is the puffy look you like?"

David F. replied to Eric W's discussion Gilets, Bodywarmers & Down Vests
"Great weekender look.  Between the shirt and jeans you are not in work mode. Once you do that, (weekend casual mode) you have a lot of variance.   I still don't like puffy collars but this is an outdoor functional jacket.  So its…"

"Here's a slightly more standard style I went for. I'm hoping to try at rugged look at some point with a casual shirt on under a black vest but I'm not sure what shirt to get so any advice there would be great."

"I would've worn my red puffy vest over a shirt as I'm sure it could pass as a life preserver - shows a concern for aquatic safety."

"I'm not gonna ditch my vests, I like wearing them and wear them more than most of my other types of clothes :P I was more looking for suggestions on what other people wear with them."

"Some clothes are purely fashionable (tuxedos), some purely functional (coveralls/boiler suit), and the rest are on a spectrum between the two. I feel these vests (never heard the word gilet before so thank you for the addition to my vocabulary) lean…"
