Okay...I have a grey/charcoal grey sort of salt-and pepper day waistcoat in (I think) tweed-its definitely wool. Would this be acceptable for wear with either formal day dress (morning coat) or the single-breasted version of the stroller?
A black waistcoat would have to match the jacket in the same material, and it was traditionally not only for solemn occasions like funerals but also for business.I had a feeling not; but thought I'd check.
So; as regards morning dress and the SB striller; the only real options are dove grey, tan/camel, eggshell blue (but I'd best be careful with that one) and black for more solemn occasions? I have cashmere striped trousers (as well as some houndstooth trousers) and a charcoal grey DB jacket that I wear as a sort of 'stealth' stroller for work quite often, but I've been after doing a single-breasted one for a while.
