Product description

“When designing this vest I was interested in exploring a minimalist shape that would be flattering to the wearer. The sloping shoulder lines and gusseted armholes create a relaxed feel without added bulk. The body of the garment fits with just enough ease to flatter without requiring waist shaping. A classic allover texture pattern keeps the silhouette as the focus while allowing subtle details like the overlapping neckband and tubular cast ons/bind offs to shine.” – Jared Flood
