The Alderney linen gilet is the latest iteration of our efforts to find the perfect answer to mid-season and late summer layering.
Quarter lined and cut from a 400g/sm top grade Belgian linen, it has a durable and reassuringly weighty feel to it. This ensures that it holds its shape better than lighter weight linens and the natural properties of the fabric (linen is made from the Flax plant which has a hollow fibre) make it the perfect accompaniment for warm summer days and cooler evenings alike.
Available now in two colour ways, this versatile Navy edition with charcoal brown contrasting pocket trims and Nehru collar piping is a Darzi classic - understated, timeless and sartorially suitable for all occasions.
Designed and made in England from sustainably sourced premium grade linen supplied by Libeco in Belgium
Quarter lined with contrasting seam binding
Fully functioning contrasting welted pockets, including a useful inside top pocket
Classic Nehru collar finished with contrast cotton piping
Biodegradable flat front urea buttons
Organic cotton labels
100% plastic free

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.
