The Workers Club
Men's Wool Gilet (Grey / Ochre Check)
Our Checked Gilet is part of ‘The Works’, which is a trio of interchangeable pieces of outerwear (in addition to the Shell and Bomber jacket) we launched the brand with.
Made by our friends Mackintosh, which in our opinion is Britain’s most distinguished outerwear manufacturer, we’ve selected from their fabric archive this charming checked wool fabric made by Fox Brothers, which is a woollen mill from Somerset that was founded in 1772. With a blend of greens, blues, yellows and oranges, it is decidedly autumnal with a warm and soft handle.
Functionality and adaptability are two primary factors with our Gilet and we’ve designed it to be reversed and zipped into our Shell jacket to create an impenetrable hybrid coat that can weather any storm.
In terms of the smaller details, we’ve sourced a lovely brushed cotton twill in navy from Brisbane Moss (another age-old British fabric mill) for the bevelled patch pockets, which are a workwear style of pocket, and have lined the armholes and dip-back hem with it for added comfort. Finally, it has a cotton ribbed neck and reliable RiRi zips that never falter. Providing that life-saving layer of defence that you always need in winter, our Gilet can be worn in a number of ways but we especially like it when it's layered with our denim jackets.
