Monsoon retro bodywarmer, now known as a gilet

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Feeling that the weather too warm to get the duffel coat out but far too chilly for just a jersey and a tee? The solution lies in this sweet looking gilet (£55) (what happened to "body warmer"?) from Monsoon man.

Apart from looking great over a smart jersey or casual hoody, this gilet has a cool retro styling that reminds me of burning around on my BMX when I was a kid. Go for the ultimate eighties-kid look, team it with a long sleeve tee, a pair of washed-out, light denim jeans, Dunlop Greenflash and a mesh truckers cap.
