Vests

BOGNER from knitwear to down 

A pullover’s not warm enough, but a jacket is too warm? Thank goodness for waistcoats! What was once a favourite of well-heeled gentlemen is now more versatile than ever. Leather, linen, wool, knitwear: waistcoats in their many forms have caught the fancy of the male fashion world. Whether classic basics or sporty must-haves - you’ll definitely find what you're looking for at BOGNER. 

By the way: in Austria, Bavaria and Switzerland, the term gilet is used for the waistcoat.  

The different styles of the men's waistcoat 

The fashion-conscious gentleman was not well dressed until he was wearing a waistcoat - at least until the early 20th century. Up until then, this item was almost a mandatory part of a man’s suit and thus an essential in every man’s wardrobe. Later, however, the waistcoat had the reputation of being only something for the older generation. A cliché that is itself now outdated. As a jacket replacement without sleeves, but also as a functional second layer, “Grandpa’s darling” celebrated a fashion comeback a few years ago.  

Versatile looks for a high-quality men's waistcoat 

The classic gilet is still very much part of the three-piece suit, although the style range is much wider nowadays than it was in the fashionable past. An elegant silk waistcoat with a shirt and tie, but without a jacket, or in a smart break in style with chinos and trainers?  Whatever pleases the discerning wearer is permitted. 

In summer, people also like to go for casual versions made of denim or fabric. In general, the sleeveless jacket alternative adds a casual twist to any leisure outfit. An all-time favourite, for example, is the combination of quilted waistcoat, hoodie and jeans. The quilted waistcoats from BOGNER are particularly popular for outdoor sports. Whether winter golf or hiking: the functional men’s down waistcoats are the perfect complement for knitted pullovers or fleece jackets.  

BOGNER: the specialist for down and quilted waistcoats 

What all men’s waistcoats from BOGNER have in common: multifunctional materials of the highest quality, as well as masculine cuts and designs.  Of course, the obligatory windbreaker, zip and collar are an absolute must.  The smart Comfortemp® padding made from recycled fibres also ensures optimum thermal insulation and pleasantly lightweight comfort. Besides, each individual style speaks its own language. Countless colours, practical zipped pockets, discreet buttons or detachable hoods - find the down waistcoat that appeals to you!
