This slightly tweaked version of our original Como linen gilet is shown here as part of a small batch for Summer 2022 made from surplus premium Belgian linen. A lighter-weight variant of our slightly heavier Alderney linen gilet, the Como in Navy features contrasting stone coloured pocket trims with side button fasteners as well as a handy inner breast pocket. Unlined with double fusing around the shoulders and finished with a traditional stand collar, this is a breathable, lightly structured summer gilet which is as smart as it is casual.
Please Note: the sizing for this style has been modified. Please check before ordering.

Given the natural fabric and fibres inherent within all of our products a light touch approach is recommended when it comes to care and cleaning. This is especially the case with linen given its naturally occurring anti-bacterial qualities.
For day to day care, placing your gilet on a hanger when not in use will help to maintain its shape. A warm iron may be used to remove creases if preferred.
For small stains and minor mishaps, a gentle brush or spot clean with a damp cloth should be the first port of call. Alternatively we suggest dry cleaning as a last resort. DO NOT tumble dry.
