The only factor you need to look at when choosing camo wedding vests
The type of material used
Wedding vests do not need to be that durable as some of the other products used outdoors. You will probably also not wear it every day and only wear it for a wedding and/or churches. You want the material to be tough enough not to tear during the first use, and it must be soft to the touch.
It is always good to find wedding vests that were made from polyester, but this material has its drawbacks. Polyester is a very tough and durable material that is ideal for outdoor hunting apparel. In the case of wedding vests, you do not need a material that will withstand all the elements nature will throw at you.
Very few people will go into the woods with their wedding vests. Polyester also has a rougher texture to it, which might be unpleasant for some people. Tuxedo Park uses a combination of polyester and sating, while iLovewedding is 100% polyester.
Satin, on the other hand, is not as durable and sturdy as polyester but is very soft to the touch. It might not be as sturdy and durable as polyester. It also snags easily. Snagging is when a sharp object pulls some of the fiber out of the material and from its regular pattern.
It also has a glossy appearance on the surface and does not wrinkle that easily. It is also very lightweight and comfortable to wear. Its insulation properties also make it good at any season. It will help keep you warm during the winter and cool during the summer.
Most oxford material is made from cotton, while others can have a combination of other synthetic fibers. This fabric will help keep you warm in the winter but can be a heavier material.
This fabric does not wrinkle and is very easy to care for. Some oxford materials also have different textures that depend on the thickness of the fibers used—the thinner the fiber, the smoother and softer the appearance.
This vest from Airtailors uses a combination of oxford and polyester fabric.
How to choose the best vest size
It is always good practice to go to a clothing store and let one of the staff members help you with measurements and choosing the ideal size vest for your body.
If you cannot visit a clothing store and you need to buy your clothes online, then you must take your own measurements or let someone assist you.
For wedding vests, you only need 3 measurements to determine your size. The measurements include that of your chest, overall chest, and waist area. Wedding vests do not have sleeves, so the arm measurements will be useless in this case.
All you need is an assistant and a measuring tape. The video below will help you with some of the measurements.
This measurement will be taken around your body just under your arms. Lift your arms and let the assistant take the measuring tape around your upper body just below your arms.
Make sure that your assistant puts one finger between the tape and your chest to give the measurement some wiggle room.
Overall chest & shoulder measurement
This measurement should be taken around your body over your shoulder area. This measurement will also help in solidifying the chest measurement.
This measurement should be taken across your hip area. Make sure to chose the area where the body is the widest.
Some of the vests in this article will have some beneficial information regarding the sizes and measurements. When heading over to Amazon, make sure to go to the section on the left where a measurement guide will be given.
Some manufacturers will look at different measurements than others, so it is essential to go through each one and make sure that your measurements will fit into theirs.
You do not want the vest to be very tight so, choose a size slightly larger than according to your measurements.
If you still could not make up your mind on which camo vest to choose, then I would highly recommend this vest from Tuxedo Park. Because of the unique combination of materials used, it is durable and soft at the same time.
