Generally speaking, a formal waistcoat is usually made from materials that look formal like something slick and shiny. So if you want to wear it casually, try to avoid this kind of material and to choose a Mens Double Breasted Waistcoat which is made from the materials that look rough such as linen, cotton, wool and so on.
