Always with. I just think that on my frame it looks a lot better.

I tend to save the waistcoat for a more formal look. I will wear it when the mood strikes though.

Arlen, once again I find that you are reading my mind... or maybe I'm reading yours... or something...

I have two Argylls-- one is a light grey tweed, the other black barathea. I have two waistcoats that I wear with my black Argyll (but not at the same time!). Both are black and one is a 3-button (as would be worn with a PC) and the other a 6-button (as might be worn with a three piece suit). If the event is "black tie" (ie: tuxedos) then I pop on the 3-button waistcoat and black bow tie and I'm off to the event. If it's a dressy day or evening event (when a conservative suit would be appropriate) I opt for the 6-button vest and a conservative striped tie. I only wear white shirts with the black Argyll, although I tend to favour light blue Oxford cloth button-downs with the tweed. I wear the same same conservative striped tie with the tweed jacket that I wear with the dressier Argyll-- it makes dressing much easier, and frankly I don't care if it tones with the stripes in my kilt. My life is more interesting that worrying about neckties!

It just adds some weird sort of oomph.

Please yourself.I tend to wear a waist coat as I prefer the look.In this part of the world it does help to keep me warm too.

How hot is it?
Do ya'll wear your argylls with or without a waistcoat?

Firstly, I don't have one. But if I did, I would get the vest just to be able to wear jacket and vest, OR vest alone, OR jacket alone. Gives you lots of options.

I think the waistcoat really adds something to the overall look, you are almost guaranteed of a dapper look with a waistcoat.
However from time to time without a waistcoat works as well,
Most of the jackets I have found came without the waistcoat but I always wear the waistcoat if the jacket came with it.

So a lot of different opinions here. But at least no one is threatening to kill me either way. :o) A lot of you say it depends on the weather- well, we live in Houston. "Nuff said. Also, this would be worn mainly at RSCDS balls.
