This has gone straight to the top of my Sunday best list. It’s simply too nice to wear in the workshop. Soft, beautifully made, great detailing, an inside pocket would be great, but overall it’s a great piece of kit.
I’m 6’1 44” chest and bought a medium. It is a snug fit that I’m really happy with. Excellent for layering with a shirt underneath it’s warm and durable and looks smart. It reminds me of Loden fabric. As usual it’s the excellent service from Natural Man that keeps me coming back.
This is an excellent garment, superb heavy but soft wool, double stitched, deep hip pockets. Actually 2oz heavier than the equivalent from a better known brand, for a better price, and Stormy Kromer seem a great company to deal with - they responded very quickly by email to a query about this garment. Size wise I tend to be a L in American brands, XL in British/European. I tried the L and it was neat on me, XL perfect for wearing over a few layers. Great service from Natural Man, who even included a wooden hanger for the gilet, nice touch.
A good quality wool vest that is ideal for work in cold weather. I like the number of pockets and their size. Highly recommended.
The waistcoat is very nicely made. Just what I wanted.
