    Its not this exact same one, but the color scheme is somewhat similar. The back is black and it has subtle vertical lines. I am not a baller, I can not buy nice great vests.

    It also doesnt have the :greddy: design on the back. The one I have my ex got me from American Eagle, fits me well, I get a lot of compliments on it. BUT, I only have one light blue dress shirt that I have tried it with. I was going to try wearing it with a white business dress shirt tomorrow but I need to buy one about 3 sizes smaller because the one I have drapes down too far under the vest.

    So my question, is what the biggest no nos of vests?

    I was contemplating wearing it with a button up (not a business shirt) that is basically this:

    Seems to fit me fine, again I get compliments on it. But my concern is the bottom comes down an extra 2-3 inches than I want it to and the collar doesn't like to stay still under the vest and its too short to constantly stay over.

    I am 6'5" 185.

    FML I need some no nos and assistance before the morning :o

    I've never liked the way I look in a t-shirt and a vest. And what type of t-shirt exactly? :hsughno:

    express type of graphic tees? plain tees?

    :weak:

    No shirt, no care. You will just look like a kid.
    shirt + vest + jeans + sneakers or dress shoes. Depends of the venue.
    And if I read correctly it's just a plain, black vest. You can go with almost any shirt color you want, as long as you have the skin tone.

    i wouldn't wear it at all. if you're dead set on it, bust out a not-super-plungy vneck underneath
