We set out to find the perfect etched mirror for our new apartment this weekend, but ended up trying on the new Rag & Bone collection instead. Their tailored white tuxedo vest, with ivory trim and a halter neck, was a painfully tempting purchase. The salesperson pointed out that it's the one Kate Bosworth wears in this month's Vogue - then he claimed it looks better without a shirt underneath. "It's so hot!" he squealed. We sent a skinny friend into the dressing room even though we were sure it'd look awful, but he was right, it actually looked kind of "hot." Kate Hudson might be the only one who can pull off the look with ripped low-rise jeans, and even she's a stretch. But maybe it could work with something high waisted, or looser fitting? There's a part of us that knows this look really depends on the girl rocking it, and that at the end of the day, there's something, well, cheap about it. But then again, we tend to always associate traditionally "hot" with cheap anyway. Would you wear just a vest on top? Or is this trend pushing sexy menswear too far?
