Discover form-fitting vests by Seoul-based designer Juun J or a crocheted merino wool cargo vest by New York Fashion Week talent Private Policy. These pieces are sure to add a polished twist to any outfit.
A vest is a sleeveless upper body garment that can be worn over a shirt to protect it from sweat and odors, or to insulate the wearer in cold weather. Vests have a long history in both men’s and women’s clothing, and are often a necessary part of a suit or uniform. A vest can be made of either cotton or wool, and may be solid colored, patterned, or embellished with buttons. They can be short or long in length, and may have a scoop neckline, V-neckline, or rounded neckline. Often, the term “vest” is used interchangeably with waistcoat or gilet.
A man’s vest, or waistcoat, is most often worn as the third element of a three-piece suit and can be made of a variety of materials. While white flannel or worsted waistcoats are traditional, they can also look good in navy blue or charcoal suits. Natural sandy browns, buff, or dove gray are also nice options. The fabric of the waistcoat should match the color of the suit, and most have some type of pocket arrangement, ideally for holding a fob watch or pair of spectacles.
While a vest is not required for every outfit, it can add a touch of elegance to even the most casual looks. It’s also a great option for layering, and can be especially useful with shirts that are ill-fitting or slightly oversized. Just make sure the colors of the shirts and vest match or contrast, to avoid looking like an uncoordinated mess.
If you’re shopping for a designer waistcoat, don’t settle for anything less than high-quality craftsmanship and fabrics. A well-made waistcoat will be more durable and last longer than a low-cost vest. It will also have a superior fit, and you’ll be able to create more outfits with it than you could with a cheaper jacket alone.

Pajamas & Robes
Pajamas (or pyjamas, if you prefer the British spelling) are more than just sleepwear. When well-made and paired with the right robe, they can elevate your home time to the next level. Whether you’re curling up on the couch with a book, cuddling with your kids, or preparing to tuck in for bed, these PJs and robes will help you feel utterly at home.
Featuring natural fabrics, organic cotton, and eco-friendly dyes, the best pajamas are soft, comfortable, and sustainable. Look for sustainable PJs made of organic or recycled cotton, organic silk, bamboo, hemp, or linen. These materials don’t wreak as much havoc on the environment as synthetic fibers, and they tend to be less irritating for sensitive skin.
We love the earthy feel of the brushed gray pajama set from Piglet Gray, which is both stylish and durable. Its classic silhouette and navy piping are timeless, while the white pearl buttons give it a luxurious update. For a luxe loungewear splurge, Lahgo’s coveted Washable Silk Set is both thermoregulating and oh-so soft to the touch.
Another splurge-worthy option is the Eberjey Gisele PJ Set. The notched collar, drawstring pants, and crisp contrast piping give these PJs a refined menswear aesthetic, and you can choose from dozens of solid and print options on the brand’s website. If you’re shopping on a budget, consider the less-than-$25 blue woven pajama set from Hanes.
While we’re talking pajamas, check out the women’s PJs from Made Trade, a climate neutral certified small family business that supports fair wages, empowers female farmers, and sustains their communities. These modern basics are GOTS-certified, made of Pima cotton or second-skin modal, and feature low-impact dyes.
You can also find a range of eco-friendly PJs from emerging independent brands, like the breathable brushed cotton pajama set from Sunday Morning, or the ultra-soft French linen PJs and robe from Mate the Label. You can even pair these PJs and robes with other accessories, like the black lace kimono from New Story for extra at-home comfort. Every night can be a good night when you shop for designer pajamas and robes on DOORS NYC.

Amongst the many cult designer brands featured on DOORS NYC, Brooklyn Tailors is one of the best-known. This bespoke tailor (they’re also expert at making shirts, ties and dresses) is one of the few stores in the US to carry a range of men’s and women’s designer shoes, from heeled ankle boots from U.K. shoemaker Tricker’s to chukka and Chelsea boots from American maker Nepenthes.
If you can’t make it to the shop in person, check out the online store and online catalog for a wide selection of boots and shoes by artisanal and independent designer labels. Alternatively, keep an eye out for sales and sample sales in New York City that happen throughout the year.
