Waist Coats – Not just for the old anymore!

There used to be a time when waistcoats were considered more of a middle-aged and older men attire but gone are those days thanks to a bunch of fashion-forward menswear brands who have managed to push the trend into younger lot. More and more fashion enthusiasts are sporting the waistcoat look now and looking better than ever.

As you can see from Shammal’s look you can totally wear these waistcoats over jeans as well for a semi-formal or formal gathering.

The trend has seeped into menswear thanks to strong showings by menswear designers and fashion-forward brands and leading the trend is menswear brand of the moment ‘Bareeze Man’.

On the designer front, Republic by Omar Farooq is leading the trend. Here’s Omar Farooq himself wearing waistcoats at two different occasions and showing everyone how it is done.

Before parting, I leave you with images of yours truly trying my hands at the very same trend back in April at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week.
