Gilets and Body Warmers
The gilet is a sleeveless jacket or heavy straight sided waistcoat. It it typically worn as an outer layer for extra warmth, usually over heavy knitwear, another lighter jacket or sweatshirt, and can combine to create a great look.
Indispensable Extra Layer
Some of our top end jackets have an integral zip out gilet inside. Many modern gilets are light weight and wind proof with multiple pockets & hoods.
A valuable layering piece, the gilet combines design and function and is a versatile garment: until recently, quite underrated in the UK market. Ideal for modern use, it allows that extra layer of warmth as and when it's needed, without the bulk of a full blown jacket. Ideal for the Great British climate.
Look for great examples of the gilet from all brands, especially Ralph Lauren and Canada Goose.
