An iconic country wardrobe staple, am I right? The gilet is a must-have piece for practically every country and/or equestrian enthusiast. With styles for casual outfits, shooting gilets and waistcoats, more practical equestrian inspired options. Maybe though, the most stand-out style is the Schoffel Lyndon Fleece Gilet, dubbed the ‘uniform’ of the countryside… but that was until this dropped into my inbox! *This is not an ad or sponsored post, just happy to spread the love!
North Yorkshire based, independent country clothing designer, Frimble has just launched this beautiful take on the gilet and I just had to share it with you all! I first came across Sophie’s brand a few years ago, in the earliest days of In The Country, both she and I were just starting out, finding our feet and with a desire to work together then, this has evolved, to today.
A few words from Sophie on the launch of the new tweed waistcoat; “I’m over the moon to share my new waistcoats with my customers and the wider world. They are perfect for taking on summer and autumn outings when the rather unreliable British weather means you never know when you’ll need an extra layer. I’m delighted with the combination of smart grey tweed paired with classic navy piping and think these waistcoats will become a firm favourite!”
Crafted from British (YAY!) tweed, in a gorgeous dove grey and finished with a smart navy piping on the edges and zip, the Frimble Tweed Waistcoat (£165.99) is tailored to provide a flattering finish and feminine silhouette.
The waistcoats are made from an easy-to-wear lightweight tweed making it perfect for all seasons. This piece is perfect for pairing with a stylish shirt or a subtle, light long sleeve base-layer when the weather is better or layer with a thick cosy sweater when the evenings get chilly! The chic grey ensures this is a piece of clothing which straddles country and town dressing with ease and will go with practically any colour!
The Frimble Tweed Waistcoat is available in sizes Small (UK size 8 – 10), Medium (UK size 10 – 12) and Large (UK size 12 – 14). All of the stunning items in the Frimble tweed collection are crafted from tweed carefully selected by the brand’s owner and designer Sophie Osborne from mills in Yorkshire and Scotland. The fabric is then hand-cut and made up into her designs, all dreamt up to be as flattering and versatile as possible. We think she’s nailed it!
