Lavenham Cork Bomber Gilet

Regular price £180.00

For Spring Summer 2020 Lavenham proudly collaborated with the National Portrait Gallery on two exclusive gilets. Both the Crew Neck and Bomber gilets are made from their signature ‘Lavenster’ water resistant fabric and quilted in their iconic two-inch diamond pattern. As with all Lavenham quilting, the wadding is made from 65% recycled fibres.

The contrast lining and matching press studs are finished in the same striking shade of ‘Tudor Blue’ which decorates the most popular rooms of the portrait gallery. The colour is also used for the embroidered ‘NPG’ motif on the back of each style, the design of which was taken directly from a mosaic floor found in one of the oldest parts of the gallery.

Available in four sizes - please select from the drop down menu below:

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
