Men's Gilets / Waistcoats
Some people have never heard of the name ‘gilet’, but they will have seen them, they might not know the name of that which they admire but admire them they will. Who cannot be impressed by the rugged, classically handsome good looks of a check waistcoat in the finest country tweed, or a waxed hunting gilet? Our large and varied selection of waistcoats for men are perfect for enhancing your country sports be they shooting, hunting or horse riding. Our selection is good looking yet supremely practical because looks are pleasing to the eye, but practicality is what we reach for every day. No matter the vagaries of the British weather, a good windproof or waterproof men’s gilet will be worth its weight in gold on the field. You can dress them various ways; a bodywarmer can be worn on its own over a shirt in the summer, over a shirt and jumper combination in the spring and autumn. Some of our customers, to keep warm in the coldest parts of the UK, wear their gilets over their winter coats when they need to be outdoors in the harshest of weather. Design is an important feature of gent’s country clothing, often taken for granted, we want you to know you can depend on us to only stock tried and tested designs. Whilst a pocketless design might look sleek in a magazine photo shoot; those pockets are essential in the real world of country living. Our selection encompasses various designs to suit different figures, a variety of materials from wool tweed to waxed cotton, equally suited to a more formal country esquire look or a laid-back casual look when you’re pottering in the garden. We stock the full range of the more popular colours; green, olive, tan, black and grey. Choose a style with additional padding for added warmth, useful inner pockets, hand warmers or game pockets. Or maybe you’re looking for something more lightweight? All styles are hardwearing and robust, with no concession to style. Why not team them up with a matching pair of trousers or plus fours from the rest of our collection?
