Our linen gilet in dark blue is based on the easily recognisable design of the Original Darzi, just with a more lightweight fabric to make it suitable for warmer weather and climates. A quality 100% linen has been expertly crafted into a stylish waistcoat that although lightweight, still has plenty of structure and clean lines. The exquisite cut is contemporary, but also comfortable allowing for plenty of freedom of movement for those who enjoy an active or busy lifestyle.
The dark blue linen gilet features an Indian-inspired Nehru collar, which is bound around the edges to ensure that it holds its signature shape. The contrasting pockets in an off-white shade contrast perfectly with the rich blue shade, preventing the garment from appearing too flat and one-dimensional. The waist pockets of the gilet feature a small horn-button fastening, which is particularly smart and ties into the larger horn buttons of the four-button closure. The gilet is finished with an inside pocket that can hold a wallet or smartphone, without affecting the shape and the sharp lines of the garment.
The fit of this linen jacket is wonderful and thanks to double fusing around the shoulders give extra strength and durability, to ensure that the gilet will stand the test of time and hold its contemporary shape. Keep it casual with a t-shirt and jeans, or for a smart summer, look team tailored shorts and a classic white shirt. Tailoring that is always stylish.
