so..a tie is an accessory.....that makes perfect sense.

But....what about a vest??

I can do the last flannel shirt for hubby, and I even have a camp shirt ready to make for him, but.....still....what would a vest be considered?? And no, not a fleece zip-up thing, but a lined, button up, to wear under a suit jacket-type of thing???

I would think a vest qualifies as a piece of clothing -- it's not really an accessory IMO.

I hope the contest moderator chimes in here, because I have three men wanting vests and all...

I just posted the official thread for the Menswear Challenge. The rules don't specifically mention vests, but I believe they would qualify as garments and not accessories.

I'll double-check that with the Contest Committee, and post an update in the official thread.

Looking forward to seeing your entries!

Liz (contest manager)

Vests have been added as eligible garments for the menswear challenge.

Thanks for the question!
