from Ask Russell Smith, Style section, Globe and Mail, February 4,
"Because Britain, for various historical reasons, has such a disproportionately
large impact on masculine sartorial conventions, tailors usually refer to vests in the British manner as waistcoats. If you
are really old-money, you will pronounce it as “weskit.” Lexical matters aside, a non-matching waistcoat without
a jacket is now a popular and accepted part of casual wear. It’s a great way to dress up jeans. (I am particularly keen
on tweed waistcoats: Nothing says “intellectual interests” like that one small garment.) "
