The Gentleman’s Vest

One day while filling in as a temporary worker and in between telephone calls, my eyes wandered to the Twilight Saga calendar. The pin-up vampire for the month of July was Laurent.

Sexy Laurent. His blood-red vampire eyes gazed back into my chocolate-brown human eyes and…then I noticed he was wearing a gorgeous renaissance vest with a silk scarf edged in lace, a rhinestone studded belt, black jeans, and a linkchain inserted through a button-hole of the vest.

Sorry Laurent, fashion calls. Maybe next time I will indulge your gaze and…then  I returned to studying the embroidered flower motifs on the vest, emblazoning the design into memory, for when I had a chance to surf through Etsy.

Feast your eyes upon beauty, upon skill, upon six ornate and tailored vests each with its’ own style and character. Gentlemen, you can wear the vest alone without a shirt underneath, as Laurent did, and show off your muscular arms, as Laurent did. Or, you can wear a shirt underneath and put on a tuxedo as a groom or a groomsman. Either way, you will be as sexy as Laurent.
