With us at Morts & More we’re always open to experimenting with new styles and never shy away from bold looks. In recent years, waistcoats have made a big resurgence in the menswear market. As more and more men opt for the waistcoat to accompany their suit, more are finding ways to make their three-piece suits look unique and stand out. From double-breasted waistcoat options to horse shoe (scooped neck) waistcoats there are quite a few ways to make a statement. Having a different colour waistcoat is possibly the biggest way to make a three-piece suit standout.
Mixing odd waistcoats with your suits is the topic of conversation in this edition of Morts & More Moment. As well as, how to style a navy suit with a black waistcoat. Grab a tea, coffee or drink of your choice and kick back and enjoy this weeks Morts & More Moment…

Morts & More Moment Video Transcript
Sena: Welcome back we’re here again with another Morts & More Moment. Today we’re tackling another question from our viewers. Question from Peter. Would love to hear some suggestions from you guys as to what shirt and tie to combine with a navy suit and a black waistcoat, or maybe an entire video about odd waistcoats. Thanks in advance. So this is what we’re going to be covering today. As you can see Joshua is wearing the navy and the black waistcoat, so I’ll let you take it.
Joshua: I would tend to go for a white shirt, I mean I could wear the sky blue shirt but then that would limit me a little bit in the way I do my tie and pocket square. If I were to wear the blue shirt I’d probably go for like a black or blue tie (just to keep it simple colours, not too much going on) and then a white pocket square. Now with a white shirt it opens it up because I tend to say you can go for a three colour maximum with your outfit and that’s not including the white. So Ive already got two colours, the blue and the black, that now leaves spaces for a third colour. With black and blue it can be styled in so many different ways.
Sena: So for the next part as you’ve seen the question or as you heard in the question, he’s also asking for us to discuss just on waistcoats. We’re going to show you guys two complete looks. from each o
Joshua: That’s four
Sena: For those who find maths hard that’s four (lol). So you can see those looks coming up right now.
Sena: We hope you found today’s video useful. We hope we’ve given you some ideas on how to style with an odd waistcoat, separates, or mix n match, however you want to call it. Obviously it’s just a small selection of what we can do but play with it and try it. Experiment, try different looks, try different waistcoats, try different colours, just try keep them complementing.
