"The cheaper the better."



Don't forget to watch the original Sartorialist, Bill Cunningham, narrating the street fashion he shot this past week. The theme is vests, about which he happily reports that the trend is from the streets, not high-priced designers, and that for this trend, "The cheaper, the better."

Watch it HERE



Is that even a vest??

sure, if you have bodies like those two, you can make torn burlap look good.

Yuck. Neither look is good, the first is too buttoned up and the last needs some more buttons, or fabric-yeesh! I still like vests, though.

Wha?? I know the girl looks scandalous, but that guy is perfection.

I don't know if what that girl is wearing is indeed a vest, but it certainly looks cheap.

weren't vests already "in" circa 2005 when kate moss wore them everyday?

Her belly chain—or is it an exposed thong?—makes me sad. But the guy: good.

That woman is a hot mess. If I am seeing that much frontal, how much crack is she displaying. I like to keep my daywear child friendly, thanks.

I totally want to be friends with that girl, though.

My first year in college, this girl Cagney talked constantly about her inappropriately aged boyfriend and even hollered to the girls in the dorm "Who needs to go to the store?! I need to get some KY."

Who does that???

Girls like this. And they're kind of a trip. Sluts are awesome. Talk about living vicariously.

Sluts are the best. I knew this one in high school who walked around with her plastic tampon case jutting shamelessly from the back pocket of her black cords (all right, I went to high school in the 70s). She was my hero.

All the people above who just trashed Vest Girl: You're all female, right? Thought so.

I will agree the girl looks fabulous, physically. But I stand by what I wrote. I just can not get behind visible underwear. HOT MESSS.

I'm sure your disapproval will dishearten her.
