The Gareth Pugh Men’s Zip Up Vest for autumn/winter ’11, seen here in black.  The zippered vest from Gareth Pugh’s autumn/winter collection grounds itself in the familiar black-and-gold colour scheme that runs through the collection. Experimenting with texture and form, Gareth has, in this instance, given the piece an open-backed construction, joined at the small of the back with an elasticated section.  The vest is created, in the main part, from a blend of polyester and wool, which is padded, making it soft and thick. Trimmed in supremely-soft and thick lamb leather, the vest fastens with chunky gold-coloured zippers and features two zippered vents on the chest that have the appearance of pockets.  Made in Italy – please hand wash.
