The Down Gilet - The Perfect Layering Piece
The quilted down Gilet, this is definitely a piece that is the glue for the rest of your winter garments.
The Fit and weight are a crucial part of bringing this piece into play – too chunky, and you won't be able to layer a coat on top ( when it gets really cold)... if its too tight nothing will fit underneath.
Which means you should match your gilet to your layering goals. Barbour, Rocky Mountain Feather Bed and Moncler have heavier, well-insulated styles that work perfect as an outer layer over a chunky knit or a hoodie, while Orlebar Brown and Uniqlo offer up lighter mid-layer that fit to perfection between shirts and blazers or denim jackets.
