The House with the Bronze Door.
Just when things get a little bit precarious, someone comes along and makes it all safe and sterile again. Take all the meat off the bone. Alas, we begin again. Things do get that proverbial patina back, that unmarked and dangerous mystique that once made them so alluring.
That’s when you wear a vest like this.
To the gambling house with the bronze door on 5th Avenue and 33rd, for roulette, lobster, and scotch. Down to Chinatown for a rougher scene. No lobster. Just the worm at the door letting you in. A vest like this has equivalency. Currency. Uptown and downtown. Sophisticates and dregs. Of course, it’s all about how and when you wear it. I recommend doing so after the streetlights come on.
Equivalency Vest (No. 6052). Luscious goat Nappa suede with a striking shawl collar undulating down to a tailored double-breasted front. Incredibly relevant over a t-shirt, under a gregarious sport coat, with an American Archetype Shirt, or over a collared shirt and tie.
Slimming with the waist-shaping darts and side vents. Welt pockets with flaps at waist.
Angled front weskit. Leather belt at back with adjustable metal buckle. Full lining and backing in luxurious brown paisley. Made in India.
