A hard-wearing gilet perfect for the active outdoorsman.
Our Barrington Gilet will help keep your body warm and dry. Meticulously designed to offer the freedom of movement required during your outdoor pursuits.
Made in Britain using top quality Derby Tweed, we strive to bring you a gilet manufactured to the highest of standards. We have been developing this gilet for over 20 years, so you can be assured you’re receiving a jacket made by professionals.
The Tweed is twill woven. Twill is a type of textile weave with the yarns packed very closely together making it thick and tightly woven – resulting in a durable fabric which can withstand wear and tear. This type of weaving can be made in a multi-tone pattern with diagonal parallel ribs. The tweed is spun yarn, making it softer and less prone to snagging.
We have also treated the tweed with a Teflon fabric protector. This works like a protective barrier around each fibre of the fabric to help fend off water, dirt and stains – all while not affecting the fabrics weight, look, feel, colour, or breathability.
Your Barrington Gilet is an ideal piece of attire, no matter the weather.
Perfect to layer underneath a jacket during the colder months. Tweed is a great heat insulator – along with the thick design and studded storm-flap enclosure, your torso will be protected from cold winds.
Your Derby Tweed will also be water-resistant to keep your body dry during showers.
During the warmer days when it’s just a little too hot for a jacket, you can rely on your Barrington Gilet to offer you just as much functionality without the excessive warmth.
Our Barrington Gilet has a classic, regular fit to accommodate layering while offering freedom of movement. Available in Dark Sage and Light Sage.
Style this gilet with our selection of matching jackets, hats and trousers. We also have a selection of shirts and jumpers, which are ideal to layer underneath your gilet.
