Inspired by the 17th Century waistcoat, the vest is a light garment worn on the upper body. A lack of sleeves makes a vest a vest, and more often than not, this piece of clothing ends near the waist.
A vest can be simple or decorative and can be worn for leisure or luxury purposes. Vests can be worn either in the place of or underneath a larger coat upon the weather, wearer, and setting. Sometimes though, a vest is worn over a long or short sleeve shirt, tee or fleece.
Vests today are made of an impressive assortment of fabrics, which serve various purposes and functions while allowing for variation in design and style contain various frontal materials like buttons or zippers.
