This textured, cream colored, fancy weave vest has a low shawl collar, the style worn for dress or formal occasions. There's a small pocket on either side in the front.There are four machine-made eyelets (for studs) on the proper right side at the front of the garment, and four machine-made button holes on the proper left front of the garment. The lining and the backing are made of white, perhaps artificial silk. (There's a small diaper pattern of tiny diamonds.) The back cinch belt is unbuckled. Inner straps (from each side in the front) of elastic (which is now spent) probably helped to keep the front of the vest in place by buttoning it to inner buttons at the waistband of the trousers.
