Tweed can be tricky. It can be hard to pull off, and at times (like early fall), it can feel a bit too much like outerwear when sported inside. Which is why a tweed waistcoat offers an easy solution. It's a way to bring a bit of rustic, autumnal charm and add a nice layer of texture to a regular shirt and tie, without taking over the whole look. And as the temperature dips, they look great under outerwear—from a blazer or top coat to a leather or denim jacket. And thankfully, there are plenty of options this season. L.L. Bean has an impressively priced shetland wool vest in a handsome herringbone and Rugby offers a smart looking style with dual chest pockets in an English windowpane plaid.
