Instant heat: the smart new Cambridge Gilet, £37
This smart new Cambridge cord-trim quilted gilet is very flattering—it might just be the smartest quick buy you make in the current freeze! An essential workhorse of a waistcoat, it keeps you looking smart and warm without bulk, is light and easy to wear for everything from driving to riding to working dogs, country walks, gardening, helping at the point-to-point or the Pony Club—and for any day spent indoors when you can’t the heating turned up full blast but without this extra layer you will freeze! It is the perfect gilet to wear alone or to add an extra warm layer under a jacket throughout the year.
Extremely well made and well cut, it has a contoured silhouette to flatter the figure—helped by being neat and short enough not to require side flaps, as you can sit or ride in it without it rucking up. The cord-lined collar comfortably and warmly lines the neck. It has just the right amount of padding, two flapped and studded front pockets, a full zip front with studded placket, and an ultra-smart grosgrain trim. It is fully lined and comes in sizes 10 to 22.
The colours are a very smart olive green and navy (pictured) as well as an attractive cherry red. You can fling it in the washing machine and it’s quick-drying.
