    Straight to the point, I do. I'd say it's a habit from my childhood (I was indoctrinated to wear vests :sigh:), but it does help with retaining warmth I guess.

    According to this, Silvio Berlusconi says it's macho not to! :eek: Perhaps this is why I'm perpetually single. :rolleyes:


    Anyway, do you wear vests? If so, why?

    Thermal ones, yeah. But then I'm often out in open fields in the wind all day, where function comes before fashion. It's not like they look particularly bad or anything. I have some quite nice quality lace-edged ones.

    In fact, it's a bit of a non-issue.

    Kind of nerdy looking, perhaps?

    Although, I don't know any nerds who wear vests. :hmmmm:

    :shock: This! This must be why I wear vests!

    It does feel weird when my shirt is in contact with my chest. :yep:

    My dad seems to always wear one without fail.

    I have a couple, but only wear them under certain clothes (ones I feel are thinner or less warm than others I guess). I'm not mad on them but I wouldn't outright say that I will never wear a vest. Just another bit of clothing really

    Hmm, thermal vests :beard:

    Are they different from normal vests? Better at keeping warmth, I presume. :ahee:

    How random... I didn't know anyone wore vests over the age of like 5. lol. :p:... Nahhh... I had the same indoctrination in childhood but it just caused rebellion rather than conforming with the vest thing in later life :p:

    Do they unwrap you like a Christmas present? Do you cover the main attraction with a shiny bow?
