Inspired by classic flight or bomber jackets, this piece stays true to the cut originally designed for pilots during WW1. Pilots needed outerwear that was fit for purpose, and so heavy duty jackets were issued with wraparound collars, zipper closures with wind flaps, snug-fitting cuffs and waists to combat windchill and avoid the risks created by unsecured sleeves or fittings.
This piece brings the staples of bomber jacket design into a classic Lavenham gilet. The regular fit, rib collar and durable cord trim patch pockets will sit perfectly under all weather jackets, or on top of your favourite knit. We’ve used wool supplied by Abraham Moon & Sons; one of the last remaining vertical woollen mills in Great Britain, for a hard wearing, breathable finish which provides warmth and comfort in equal measures.
