Did you know?

Jersey: is a knitted fabric that most often has an extremely fine surface which is distinguished by its high degree of elasticity. The resulting comfort is what makes jersey so popular.

Elastane: a synthetic, elastane is added in small quantities to fabrics to provide stretch and shape retention. It allows freedom of movement and delivers long lasting fit. Lycra is a premium branded version of elastane.

Viscose: used to be known as 'artificial silk' because like silk it has superb drape, is soft to the skin and can be dyed in rich colours. A man-made fabric, it's made from wood pulp and blends easily. You will often find it blended with other fabrics to add softness, lustre or absorbency (it's highly absorbent and so cool to wear in the summer).

Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.

Great 4.0

The vest is very large - like the jacket of this series also -. When the jacket I ordered then less than a number and she fit loosely (in Gr. 50 and 1.80 m). The vest I've omitted for 2 reasons. 1 is the armholes me much so large (more than already common in large sizes). 2. is it me too long. I wanted them to the matching jacket and as layered look that does not. Who always solo wants to wear them with what there is so well served.

Original customer review

Die Weste fällt - wie auch die Jacke aus dieser Reihe - sehr groß aus. Bei der Jacke habe ich dann eine Nummer kleiner bestellt und die hat locker gepasst (bei Gr. 50 und 1,80 m). Bei der Weste habe ich aus 2 Gründen verzichtet. 1. ist mir der Armausschnitt viel so groß (mehr als in großen Größen ohnehin üblich). 2. ist sie mir zu lang. Ich wollte sie zur passenden Jacke und als Lagenlook wirkt das nicht zusammen. Wer sie immer solo mit was drunter tragen will, ist damit gut bedient.

The quality... is very high The product runs… very big
