The waist coat is undoubtedly a key layering piece within the world of work wear. Brands have delivered many versions in the last few seasons and some of my favorites have come from Engineered Garments, Filson and National Anthem - however the king might be Post Overalls in my book. After getting to try on a couple different versions and feel the weight and touch the lining, I feel that Post Overalls' vests have the perfect feel and weight to them, plus they come in ideal colors and material options. From heavier twill cottons, to soft wools, to the diagonal quilted version - the differences aren't in your face, but they're there. I feel like we can get past the non-sense chatter about how most of us don't currently work the labor jobs that these vests were once built for. These are made for 'fashion' minded people and hence they are made to be worn in fairly friendly conditions. That's fine with us, because that's what we're looking for and that's what Post Overalls is making best.
