Navy Quilted Gilet with Knitted Back
Gilets in their various guises have long been a sartorial favourite, from the thick leather jerkins of the Middle Ages to flamboyantly embroidered waistcoats of the Regency era. Much loved for their versatility, they provide excellent body warmth while allowing full arm movement. Our latest Hilditch & Key offering is no different.
Made in Portugal by the same family-owned firm that crafts our corduroy trousers, this gilet lends a little European chic to the classic British gentleman’s staple. Finished in a fetching two-tone effect, the quilted front comes in a variety of colours and is stylishly offset by a navy knitted back.
A flattering cut allows the gilet to sit elegantly on the waist; the functional two-way zip affords maximum ease of movement, in much the same way as a gentleman obtains by traditionally leaving the bottom button of his waistcoat undone. Wear simply over a shirt in the office or team with one of our sumptuous cashmere sweaters to ward off the chill of a cool, crisp country walk.
