Very British vest. Made of strong virgin wool flannel.
Nigel Cabourn has this rustic vest
in England based on the historical
model of a business suit. The outer
fabric, a strong flannel with a coarse
feel, is woven by Fox Brothers in
southwest England, a wool
mill specialized for nearly 250 years in
combed and carded fabrics. It is not
brushed, as is often the case with flannel,
thus the weave remains visible.
