Vested Interest

All my life I have been fascinated by the ambitions of the once humble vest, a clothing item originally worn by the meekest of people as only a place to keep their watches

 It  slowly became a clothing item of it's own, not merely part of a suit, but a rugged being, full of presence!!

(when I was taking a photo of this, a 50 something beer bellied T-shirt tucked into his belt-less slacks walked up, asked me if I was buying it [I answered no] grabbed it and asked the cashier how much it cost [9.99 really] than bought it)

 now unafraid, it became the trademark of many boisterous characters

(I could swear, my sister used to own this vest)

 and finally it has risen to become not just a clothing item, but a walking art form
