Usually when the Shirt Snob hears the word vest, we automatically think ugly. We've never been much of a vest fan and rarely see one we can stomach. But the Stretch Cotton-Wool Shawl Collar Vest by Generra we really like. It's probably because it looks more like a sleeveless sweater than a vest. Made from a cotton and lambswool blend, it has a pointed shawl collar with a crossover snap button, a large kangaroo pocket at the front, and ribbed banding at the bottom hem and arms. Besides wheat, it is also available in grey.
