  • Description

    The newest iteration 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 looks with this piece, inspired by the likes of a draped layering virtuoso (think Diane Keaton). A slim, all-black look paired with smart heels will take you from work to dinner in the city, and to everywhere in between. I also see this covered in paint, dust, or chalk and paired with trusty denim and clogs on a practicing artist like long-time muse Eva Hesse. This piece is meant to make your life easier and getting dressed simpler.

    The added shawl collar (brought over from our Clyde Jacket and Trench) gives this piece a totally new personality and functionality, now designed with the option to wrap closed around your body to keep out wind or to just change up your aesthetic.

    Cut from our classic, sturdy midweight linen. A year-round fabric with weight and substance, but also lightness and movement. Natural imperfections and variation in weave give this material a rich, earthy feel.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

Not good for me

I was so excited to see a vest option in cotton canvas but this wasn’t a good fit for me. The shawl collar is just too much jacket. I felt extremely frumpy wearing it. I also had a hard time with sizing. Based on the size chart and CS advice, I’m a S. But I figured it would run big so I ordered XS. The XS fit well in the bust but was massive in the hip. I think this is probably a function of my body type being the opposite of most other customers (equal bust and hip). Unfortunately because of the pockets, it would be very hard to tailor. Still searching for an ES piece I feel good in...

Great piece for a put-together a structured look!

The material is perfect for something that is sturdy yet doesn't feel too obtrusive to wear.

It's the perfect way to add some pizazz to a more laid back outfit- whether it's paired with a nice pair of trousers or throwing on with a tee and joggers.

If you're looking to add some dimension to your wardrobe in a no-fuss and versatile way, I highly recommend this piece!

My favorite piece of clothing

I am loving how versatile this vest is. It's the perfect weight to add a little warmth but not too much, the pockets are amazing, and I wear it with almost anything. It's incredibly comfortable and looks edgy but sophisticated. It's the best!

Travel in style

I travel a lot for work and this is absolutely perfect for long car rides, hustling through airports, or sitting on frigid airplanes. Because it’s sleeveless it’s light enough that I don’t get to hot and easy to throw over any outfit. And the pockets hold everything! I got the medium for a looser fit.

So versatile.

The Clyde vest is comfortable and works with a variety of outfits from dresses and sandals to leggings and boots. I have an ample bottom which the vest does not accentuate. No clinging. In fact the pockets seem to provide balance. But the real advantage is the pockets. I pledged earlier not to buy another clothing item that did not have pockets but now I can wear all those non-pocketed items with my vest and it works like a charm. Thank you

Obsessed!

My husband bought me this vest for Christmas and I'm obsessed with it! The flax color goes with anything and is just dark enough that I don't feel concerned about stains/dirt showing up easily (which makes it so wearable!). The pockets are amazing - so deep! - and I love that the vest makes it easy to add pockets to outfits that would have none otherwise. I truly feel that this duster vest can improve any outfit!

Great addition to your wardrobe

I love my clyde vest, I was a little surprised the XL would not close on me, I'm a size 16/18 with a DD bust. It can just almost touch, but since it supposed to stay open this doesn't matter much. I am 5 ' 6" and actually cut the length about 4" and now the length is perfect for me- well, almost perfect. I was hopping in the car this weekend with my husband, our screaming toddler in the back, and my car door wouldn't shut, so I gave it the ol' heave ho' one more time with some added muscle, only to not realize my clyde vest pocket was hanging out of the car door with my iphone in the pocket. Let's just say i'm back to using my old old back-up phone again that doesn't hold a charge because my new phone is now 2 pieces. (sad face sad face sad face) I have never broken a phone, and this was a first for me. Live and learn! So safe to say, this jacket is long! But I LOVE IT, and all pieces I have bought from this company. Now if only I had got the apple care insurance :(

Let’s go, Clyde

Despite my vow to only make or buy clothing with pockets, some of my favorite clothes are pocket-free. Clyde is a beautiful and practical solution to my problem.

Clyde Vest

For me, the vest did not work because it created bulk and the pockets were too low to be functional. But I can see how it might work for others.
