Lightweight, breathable and sartorially suitable for all occasions, the Como gilet in stone linen features contrasting dark blue pocket and collar trims with classic loop button fasteners. Double fusing around the shoulders and binding around the Nehru collar adds structure whilst retaining a lightweight feel. It is finished with four horn buttons.

Given the natural fabric and fibres inherent within all of our clothing ranges, a light touch approach is recommended when it comes to care and cleaning.
Shetland Tweed, Merino Wool and Little Darzi Gilets
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.
Waxed Cotton Gilets
Waxed cotton is naturally water resistant and can be easily wiped clean.
For small stains and minor mishaps, a gentle brush or spot clean with a damp cloth should be the first port of call. Alternatively dry clean if necessary. DO NOT tumble dry.
Like wool, the naturally occurring anti-bacterial qualities of linen make it especially vulnerable to over washing.
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 necessary. Try to brush off or spot clean stains with a damp cloth where possible. Otherwise dry clean. DO NOT tumble dry.
