A jean vest for men is a piece of sleeveless clothing that fits over a shirt. Men's jean vests are used for both style as well as function, such as warmth. Jean vests have a similar look to jean jackets without sleeves.
Men's jean vests are available in various colors and are often stylized with patches, pins and other symbols to designate membership in a social group or highlight other interests. Some jean vests feature a clean, crisp look while others are frayed or fringed. In most cases, jean vests are worn in casual settings. Motorcyclists are especially well-known for wearing jean vests.
