Waistcoats are the perfect clothing item to finish of a very stylish and fashionable look. There are different designs to waistcoats, some have two or four pockets, some are collared, and some have 5- 6 buttons. Also, the traditional way of wearing a waistcoat is not with the last lower buttoned fastened, 
However, history wrote this tradition going back to king Edward VII from the early 1900s. He unbuttoned the bottom of his waistcoat because he was too fat. He unbuttoned the bottom of his jacket to pay homage to the riding jacket that suits replaced. 
Waistcoats don't have to be worn under jackets, in-fact most modern-day gentleman wear them without as they are an icon for smartness and style.
