The August Gilet exudes a refined, military-inspired minimalism. Available in high-quality Oxford wool mohair suiting or a sophisticated Prince of Wales Check, it boasts a gathered drawstring waist, a fully lined interior, a luxurious Kee dual-ended zip closure, deep patch pockets with flaps at the hips, breast pocket flaps, and curved side hem splits. Versatile and chic, it effortlessly pairs with tailored pants or jeans, seamlessly transitioning from a layering piece to a stylish dress option.

      I've always had a soft spot for vests and gilets, drawn to their adaptability, and how easily they shift from casual to chic often just with a simple change of shoes.

      I'm a big fan of the patch pockets, and the concealed drawstring is a discreet touch that works wonders sculpting a flattering hourglass figure; especially for those without a defined waist.  It's a game-changer.

      In colder seasons, I'm wearing mine with a merino long sleeve, turtle neck or classic shirt along with simple leather leggings or over-the-knee boots.  And when I'm feeling like an equestrian-inspired look, August is my go-to, paired with refined jodhpurs and riding boots. As the weather warms up, I love wearing August as a dress and heels for a chic, utilitarian minimalist vibe. 

      Hope you love it as much as I do.
