Mens Western Vest
Mens Western Vest has been a very big part of Western fashion over the course of history. Vests were first introduced by the court of the British ruler, King Charles II in the year 1666. The court men brought back vests from their Persian excursion and King Charles liked them so much, he encouraged everyone to wear one. Vests were then used to outline the body figure of a man as the hourglass figure was encouraged in both men and women in olden times. The Western world also adopted vests along with the rest of the world considering their functionality.
Western fashion has always been about functionality over style. The absence of sleeves on a vest was something very innovative and quite successful in the West as the vests provided a layer of clothing to protect the body from the chilly winter with the freedom of the arms. The spacy pockets provide ample space for a ranch hand to store a notebook and pencil to keep in check the amount of cattle present at the farm and for another, somewhere to store their tobacco and cigarettes. The absence of sleeves gives a cowboy room to swing their arm while flinging a rope or to engage in other activities on the ranch with no restriction. Vests such as the Men’s Brown Wool Montana Vest are great for one to wear around the ranch while working.
Men’s Western Vests are available in many styles and are made up of different materials to ensure that they can be worn in all types of weather. They are highly versatile as wearing them throughout the year is not only extremely functional but also quite fashionable. The most common types of Western Vests for Men are Leather vests, Wool vests, and Denim Vests.
