The Bespoken Waistcoat

 
If you are a long time reader of this blog, you know I have always appreciated a quality waistcoat. Some of my favorites are seen hereherehere, and here. Ironically, I purchased all of them from various thrift stores, and this one is no different. However, this one in particular was custom made and it features all of the bells and whistles such as mother of pearl buttons and additional pockets.

The first time I wore this waistcoat seen here, I wore under a corduroy sports coat. In fact, using a waistcoat as a layering piece is one of my favorite fall options. However, the weather was very nice today so I decided to wear it as a separate.
In other news, I am still sharpening my tailoring skills and I recently tapered these trousers. It is not much of a difference from the last time I wore it seen here, but I like the way this fits a little more.  So stay tuned for a DIY tutorial on how to taper pants.
