    **We are currently sold out of our Heavyweight Wool in Fawn. We hope to have it back in stock soon, and will update our website when it is available again. Thank you for your understanding!**

    The cold weather version of our beloved Clyde Vest—our favorite "third piece." Adding a layer like this to your wardrobe is such a great way to introduce functionality, versatility, and dimension. I see classic, timeless, monochrome styling with this piece, inspired by the likes of a draped layering virtuoso (think Diane Keaton). A slim, dark look paired with smart heels will take you from work to dinner in the city, and to everywhere in between.

    In thick, warm wool, this piece keeps your chest and trunk insulated while leaving your arms free for easy mobility and bulk-free layering. A vest like this works supremely well over a thick sweater when the weather isn't quite cold enough for a full coat, or layered under your outerwear when temperatures are very cold without further restriction to your arms. This piece is meant to make your life easier and getting dressed simpler.

    Unlined.

    We have so many great iterations of this pocket style, including other fabrics, colors, and lengths. Shop our Clyde Outerwear Series here!

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Heavyweight Wool

    Fiber Content: 60% Climate Beneficial Wool, 40% Alpaca, domestically sourced

    Description: An immeasurably soft, heavyweight, plainweave wool that holds the shape of our garments with integrity. Gorgeous visible texture and supple, rich handfeel. Not at all itchy, and super warm without excessive weight. Our wool-alpaca blend is as breathable as it is insulating. Because of its moisture wicking properties, it’s sure to keep you comfortable on a brisk winter day. Our wool is washed in house to give it a brushed, organic finish. Heathered yarn blends natural and colored fiber together for a variegated, earthy appearance.

    Care: Hand wash with cold water and wool detergent. Lay flat to dry. For a sharp suiting look, press on high heat with steam and a wool clapper.

    *Due to wool's short staple fibers, some pilling is to be expected in areas of high friction. Use a wool brick or sweater shaver to remove pills.
