And for the guys…


If you’ve not already got a waistcoat in your wardrobe. This is why you should…


The One For The Weekend Waistcoat £49.95 has it all.

Ways to wear a waistcoat

You might have noticed we can’t get enough of fun and funky waistcoats here at Joe Browns!


But knowing how to wear it, dress it up or down and give it your own distinctive twist can be a bit tricky, so we nabbed our head buyer Caroline, to give us a few pointers…




For the ladies:

She said: “Waistcoats are so versatile, you can easily style them for a smart or casual look. They’re great for adding an extra layer of warmth without being too bulky, as well as making a fun yet sophisticated impact to your outfit.


Heritage Herringbone Waistcoat



“My favourite from the new collection is the One Of a Kind Waistcoat because I love the stunning checked fabric teamed with funky buttons and a lace up back. It’s a really bold and bright look perfect for brightening up the cold dark nights to come!




“For a casual look you could pair it with an Understated Tie Neck Blouse with a lovely peter pan collar and ribbon tie – ideal for a trip to the shops or an impromptu coffee with friends.




“For a slightly smarter look, maybe for the office or evening drinks, it looks great with a crisp white shirt – like the Ruffle Blouse.




Or if you want to go even smarter for a special occasion and want a real wow factor, it looks amazing with a contrasting textured jacket. I think Our Favourite Jacket sets it off perfectly.”




Here’s a few more pics from our last shoot at the North York Moors Railway Station that’ll hopefully inspire you to rock a waistcoat this season… (click on the pic to be taken to the waistcoat).







For the guys:


This little beauty – the Charismatic Waistcoat – makes for the ultimate staple. In a quality wool mix with simple styling, it’s a great addition to pretty much any outfit.




Want to keep it cas for daytime drinks with the boys, but fancy a funky twist that they’ll all envy? Wack it over the top of a graphic tee like this Wild Night T-Shirt for a laid back look.




Go just that little bit further than a plain white shirt for a cool dapper style. The Tripple It Shirt has a few signature Joe Browns details, from the tripple collar to double contrast buttons and is spot on for date night or an evening out on the town.




For a complete distinguished gent style add on this awesome contrasting Charismatic Blazer. A great check is given a funky twist with mix and match cuff buttons creating a distinctive look. It comes complete with a pull out chest pocket lining that doubles as a pocket square – The ideal statement for special occasions.





Or what do you make of these looks?
