Lets face it, not every guy is comfortable or confident enough to wear a vest, let alone one without a jacket. Some find it too formal while others often associate vests as the go-to uniform for waiters. With the help of our stylists we’re here to illustrate that not only can you wear a vest to any occasion but you can do so confidently, without looking like a waiter.
Try, for a second to erase all your preconceived notions about a vest and simply think of it as another layering piece. Much like a sweater or scarf, a vest is a great way to add dimension and character to any outfit. And with the growing number of styles and fabrics to choose from, there’s a lot you can do with it. Wether your exploring the city by day or out on the town at night, adding this simple piece into your arsenal could be all you need to one up your biggest style critics.

Based in the Netherlands, Circle of Gentlemen, offers a modern twist to a classic sartorial aesthetic. Since 2006, 3-button collars have been a trademark for Circle of Gentlemen, giving the brand its very own, distinguished and elegant style. The brand believes that “true elegance goes much further than just wearing an exclusive item of clothing. After all, it’s how you wear it that counts.”
For this season we picked a great capsule collection of pieces to highlight the best for our clients. We opted for the blue colour pallet as that is the “it” colour for the season and also because it allows for the most versatility. Circle of Gentlemen is exactly that, for gentlemen. It’s not for the faint hearted as the pieces make a bold statement and are meant to be seen. The iconic 3-button high-collar, a modern twist on the classic Mandarin collar truly distinguish the wearer from anyone else in the room.
