It's like Tit Monday, but the tits are finance bros. The ones I really don’t understand are the people who wear them under a suit jacket 2 Vote up! Do you think they've got some winter suits with the jackets tailored a bit more forgivingly to accommodate the Patagucci gilet? 1 Vote up! I suspect they must do as otherwise it's going to be rather restrictive. I've also noticed that fleece gilets with leather piping are obviously only sold in certain outlets frequented by some City works and Army officers. 1 Vote up! A few in the office! I actually have a Jack Wills gillet but I like to wear it simply over a sleeveless vest which I think gives it a different vibe. 0 Vote up! Not surprised tbh, it was a bit Pearl Harbour on Saturday morning in particular. 0 Vote up! The ones with the leather piping make me want to vomit. 0 Vote up! Hastened by the Rugby World Cup no doubt 2 Vote up! I'm going for a Pearly King one. 0 Vote up! I love my life preserver 0 Vote up! McFLLLLLLLYYYY 0 Vote up! I have a selection of technical ones which I shall take sailing in the coming weeks. 0 Vote up! it's a fcuking bodywarmer not a Gilet 0 Vote up! zhheeeeeeeee-laaaaaaaaaay 0 Vote up! it sounds like you're trying to buy a razor but your lisp keeps getting in the way 0 Vote up! You lot move in different circles to me. Never knowingly seen anyone wear one. 0 Vote up! got to wear a suit jacket but want to keep warm? gilet! tighter silhouette than wearing an overcoat, and you can wear around the office. 0 Vote up! Schoffel for the country, patagonia for the office. 0 Vote up! I find this obsession with bodywarmers quite weird. Around here only kids wear them. 0 Vote up! They are fab on a cooler day when you want to keep the wind off the core for a bit of extra warmth but don't need a full fleece or jacket. Naturally they are at their best doing something like sailing at night in the Med or near the tropics. 2 Vote up! 'They are fab on a cooler day when you want to keep the wind off the core for a bit of extra warmth but don't need a full fleece or jacket.

Oddly, I’ve seen a padded jacket I rather like the look of. And I don’t even live in Twickers 0 Vote up! My wife bought me one. Surprisingly, my arms were a bit cold. 0 Vote up! Good to keep the core warm. 0 Vote up! The only time I come across this item is on a hike or beach. I have never seen them in an office. Aren’t you hot Clubman? 0 Vote up! Gilets? Now we are talking. Unfortunately, I am still wearing my black north face gilet from 2002, which is desperately trying to die on me. I’d buy a new one, but inflation means they are about £250 and I am too tight. 0 Vote up! Never worn one. Never will either. 0 Vote up! I mean hot in the gilet not whoa hot although you probably are actually 0 Vote up! I love that Patagonia has become the finance bro gilet of choice. A rah rah rah 23 year old JP Morgan analyst could not be less aligned with the brand image of Patagonia. Punk’d. 1 Vote up! “Quality, Integrity, Environmentalism, Justice” 0 Vote up! Your basic gilet is a key target identifier tbf. Lock and load 0 Vote up! schöffel 4 the win 0 Vote up! I only know one person who wears a gilet never thought of it as a fashion crime before, not particularly 0 Vote up! gilets are great, particularly when it's a little bit nippy and you're wfh but don't want to put the heating on / have the faff of wearing a proper coat. 0 Vote up! I have just established Patagonia do very light weight ones which explains this. 0 Vote up! So unsexy compared to a shirt. The uniform of the dull sexless City office of 2023. 0 Vote up! I have one with pockets, to throw on for gardening or dog walking because most of my stupid lady clothes have no pockets. Don't think I'd wear it elsewhere, it's very much a young farmer look in the northern shires. Style with a ruddy face for the Tory conference. 0 Vote up! couple of colleagues are in their gilets today. the season is definitely in full swing. https://x.com/HighyieldHarry/status/1706670079314653184?s=20 might wear mine on friday if it cools down 0 Vote up! They should all get karate-kicked to knock some sense into them. The ones with the tan shoes twice. 0 Vote up! tan shoes, chinos and a blue or pink shirt are practically de rigueur around here. "no more suits! nor more uniforms" "oh. look..." 0 Vote up! That reminded me of https://twitter.com/TitaniaMcGrath/status/1703418727125926211 0 Vote up! You saw me on the train? 0 Vote up! I was always wondering what happened to British fashion and London as a fashion capital of the world when squashed between a Longchamp nylon or LV blue/white checkered tote on the left and a gilet with chinos, tan shoes and a light blue shirt on the right on the District line. British exceptionalism does not extend to how to dress/behave. Stay in your lane/social class. Shame really. 0 Vote up! I guess I should be glad the trousers seem to be less slim-fit cut than in my days on the tube. I guess that having to sit in those tight trousers all day during covid times really helped to change fashion. 0 Vote up! I've given in to gingham. Always had a soft spot for it. 0 Vote up! "gilet with chinos, tan shoes and a light blue shirt" you're describing 95% of my colleagues. we also permit pink shirts. 0 Vote up! Today is gilet day1 for me. 0 Vote up! we also permit pink shirts Reminds me of a comment made by a former colleague, not particularly known for his PC approach to life I'm meeting X in house counsel for lunch today. I've made a special effort to generate rapport with him by wearing a pink shirt because X is a massive poof. 2 Vote up! I shall be taking my gilet sailing at the weekend. 0 Vote up! Do they sail well? I reckon you'd be better off sailing in a gulet rather than a gilet. I'd love to have a gulet tbh. 0 Vote up! It’s too hot for a gilet in the city today. 0 Vote up! Uniqlo ftw. Inside any jacket. Safe deep vertical inside pockets perfect for travelling. Also I choose to believe I am achieving a Kendall Roy look. 0 Vote up!
