Welcome to part two of our two-part expose’ on vintage vests. As you may recall, part one skewed more toward our feminine demographic, with plans to showcase the masculine end of the vest range in part two. However, as we plowed eBay and etsy for vintage men’s vests and waistcoats, we began to see this as more of a unisex offering. Whatever your genitalia, this week we found something for everyone, including fans of “Back to the Future.” Click on each image below to see the seller’s listing.

When Sir Richard Branson made his inaugural tourist space flight in 2010, he wore a specially-made Belstaff jacket. Founded in England in 1924, Belstaff is famed for high-performance jackets, worn by motorcyclists and pilots. One of my favorites is Belstaff’s “Sammy Miller” biker jacket, named after the 1950s motorcycle legend. At $1085, the price tag is painful, but this is one of those jackets you will wear until death do you part, most likely diving out of an airplane or in a fiery motorcycle crash. Available on mrporter.com.

Scarves are great, but sometimes a girl (or a guy) needs a cowl. Although, when men wear them I think they’re called gaiters.
Whatever you call them, I prefer tightly crocheted or knitted neck warmers with functional buttons because they offer more flexibility; you can go for a prim buttoned up look, a partially buttoned open collar look, or let it hang loosely down your shoulders like a capelet. Most cowls are also easy to stash in your purse or bag when not in use (depending on the size of your bag that is). One more thing, if you’re the fashionable type, definitely stay away from fleece cowls. Unless you’re going for that extreme camping look.
The absolute best place to find original, handmade cowls is etsy of course. Below are some of my favorites (there’s even one for dogs). Click on each image to see the listing.
