a curious vest
I ordered this vest for its beauty & warmth. On beauty it gets high marks....high quality material, soft, heavy, substantial, & looks great. However, I was disappointed that this 'vest' is more ornamental than practical, as the vest does not close in the front. It is not intended to close, but I did not perceive that accurately in the photo. So, my shoulders & back will keep warm, but not my chest. For a 'look', it is first class. I am debating whether or not to return it. (Also, the sizing is accurate.)
I love this vest! It was a Christmas present from my husband. It's very soft, cozy feeling, warm, stylish, and attractive. The color will go with everything. There are no buttons or hooks attached, but a person could go out and buy a wrap around belt to add more style and help hold in warmth. All in all I am very pleased with my gift. It's first class all the way and I know I will enjoy it for sometime to come!
