The Clyde Vest is our absolute 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 shawl collar gives this piece personality and functionality, with the option to wrap it closed around your body to keep out wind or to just change up your aesthetic. Sleeveless cut reduces unnecessary bulk at the arms, makes layering under other jackets a cinch, and means this piece is ultra comfortable to wear all day.
Material & Care: Midweight Linen
100% Linen, Oeko-Tex certified. Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth 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 hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.
Linen is a natural fiber made from cellulose fiber inside the stalks of the flax plant. It is a complete product of nature, and can vary drastically in color and texture based on the growing conditions of the season. Variations in base color and texture are not uncommon.
Natural imperfections in weave are also to be expected and embraced--slubs, nubs, and occasional bits of organic matter are common in linen. If you are looking for the homogeny and perfection of a synthetic fiber or a finely woven cotton you will not find it in linen.
Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.
Linen is a natural fiber and is expected to wear and fade over time, which we love.
