The Shetland - Dark Green

Regular price £219.00
Tax included.

One of our long-standing Shetland wool gilets, this lightly flecked dark green variant is cut from the finest 100% mid-weight Shetland tweed and features a super soft, organic cotton fleece lining for a double layer of warmth. Complete with genuine leather-bound Nehru collar and contrasting blue welted pockets, it is finished with four horn buttons and an inner top pocket.

Our gilet sizing has been through a number of years of trial and error and continues to be an evolving process. Any feedback is therefore always welcome but as a general note, our sizing for our Shetland gilet range has evolved to be a little more generous than some other brands so please consider the below guide for reference. 

For example where one might normally be a size M, a size S may be more appropriate here.

The stated measurements have been taken with the garment laid flat, from outside edge to outside edge; the chest measurement taken from armpit to armpit, the length taken from top of the shoulder to lower front hem.

And finally, if comparing our Shetland gilets with our Merino style, please note that the Shetland style features a fleece lining so has a slightly snugger fit than our Merino style which has a plain cotton lining.

Pure wool has been used to make clothing for thousands of years and for good reason. Naturally it is thermally insulating, water and odour resistant, extremely hard wearing, breathable and biodegradable; a unique combination of characteristics which make it the perfect choice for high quality, sustainably sourced outerwear. Moreover, thanks to these natural characteristics, abrasive washing treatments are generally unnecessary.

For day to day care, store on a hanger where possible. If well used, or even a little abused, simply hanging out in cool, fresh air for a short time is often all that is needed to bring a wool garment back to its original shape and form.

In the case of light soiling and small mishaps, always try spot cleaning with a brush or a damp cloth in the first instance. In the case of major mishaps, we recommend dry cleaning as a last resort. 

DO NOT tumble dry.

Perfect fit!

I couldn't be more thrilled with this Shetland gilet bought as a Christmas present for my husband who is 6'6. We normally have problems with length for him but the XXL was the perfect fit. Its a lovely dark ish speckled green which can be worn for smarter occasions or equally going on a walk in the country! Super warm too with a navy blue fleece lining. Alex and the team were so professional and delightful to deal with I couldn't recommend the company more highly. Shall definitely be using them again!! Bravo Darzi!

Quality product

Excellent product. High degree of craftsmanship and materials. Very happy, my only observation is that a different internal material could be used for the liner, while it’s warm and soft it is prone to quickly bobble. This does nothing to distract from the quality of the product.

Shetland Dark Green Gilet

Tickled Pink! Thank you so much for the trouble you took to send a different size which arrived in the middle of a postal strike. It fits like a dream and my husband will be thrilled when he wears it after Christmas. Happy Christmas to you and all yours.
