Woven and sewn on the Isle of Skye
Outer material: Skye Weavers Brushed Tweed Sphagnum
Inner material: Cotton
Gilets – or bodywarmers as they are sometimes called – are the ultimate adaptable layer. And this is a gilet like no other: hand made to order in our workshop and created from our own exclusive tweed.
The design is unique to us. We’ve created a semi-fitted shape that is flattering without being constricting. It’s made from Brushed Tweed Sphagnum, with a cotton lining. The pockets and inside of the collar are made from a soft cotton moleskin fabric.
The gilet is available in five sizes. Please check your basic body measurements in our size chart below. If you are in between sizes, we recommend the smaller size if you only want to wear a t-shirt underneath, but choose the larger size if you’ll usually be wearing a jumper. We’ve carefully researched our sizings to make them as accurate as possible, but don’t worry – you can return or exchange your gilet as per our usual terms & conditions if it’s not the perfect fit.
How to measure yourself: Use a soft measuring tape. Measure your bust around the fullest part of the bust; your waist at your natural waist (narrowest part); and your hips around the widest part of your hips or bottom. Need some extra info on how to measure? Check out this guide.
How to order: We sew the gilets to order. It normally takes us about two weeks to complete your order. There might be an occasional sewing backlog, in which case we will send you an email with the estimated delivery time.
We can also make this gilet in a Skye Weavers tweed of your choice. In this case the gilet will be non-returnable and there is an extra charge of £10 for a different tweed, or £50 for a different tweed, lining and zip colour. Please email us if you would like either of these options.
