We made this luxurious waterproof waistcoat after our customers who had purchased the 'Hughie' Loden jacket had requested it. My first thoughts were "why does a waistcoat need to be waterproof?", but it sells and I'm STILL wondering why!
The outer shell is made from the best Loden fabric in the world from Leichtfried of Austria. It has been in their range for 100 years. Made from 80% wool and 20% Alpaca. It has a beautiful handle. When it gets wet, the alpaca swells and prevents water from passing.
The lining is also waterproof and warm. It is a stunningly soft microfibre from our Italian partners Olmetex. then quilted to Primaloft padding, the best thermal insulation on the market.
If you want versatility, movement, great warmth, windproofing and of course, a touch of luxury, this is the one. Available in Navy and Green
