100% Cotton

A versatile, sleeveless cotton jacket inspired by artists’ workwear. Our quilted Art Show Gilet is simply styled with a round neck, clean button front and two integrated pockets on the front seam. It’s lightly padded and fully lined, a perfect transitional piece, finished with subtle curved hems. We think it looks great layered over our striped Sailor Shirts.

I purchased the Gilet and was not impressed. It had some hairs on it. Similar to cat hair. The button holes were frayed. Not up to standard at all. I sent it back and got a size 18. The size 18 was looser as I wanted to wear thick jumpers under it
But the button holes were frey-
ed again! Buttons loose. I was going away the next day . So decided to keep it.Not great really for the cost.

It's great, I've not needed it yet but it will be a really useful body-warmer

Art show gilet

Love this gilet, perfect fit. Only problem is I thought it was 100% cotton and garment label states “wadding polyester”. This is environmentally bad and the description on Seasalt website was not truthful.

Thanks for your review of the Art Show Gilet. When our design team select fabric as well as selecting for its sustainable credentials we also consider how appropriate it is for the product we have designed.
The fabric recycling industry for even pure fibres is still in its infancy, the sustainability team are working closely with our designers and industry contacts to establish a fully circular approach to designing our products we will keep all of our customers updated on this as we develop things further.
We do offer a large range of 100% organic cotton garments
Thanks you for pointing out the inaccuracies on the website, we’ll get this updated now.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Useful weight but rather large

I wanted a navy gilet to replace an old one that's faded and long past its best but wanted one that's 100% cotton. This one iss lightweight so ideal for cooler summer and autumn days but not for the depths of winter.

My main criticism is that the size 8 (my normal size for Seasalt tops) is large, even over a thicker jumper and it gapes across the back of the armholes. I shall only use it in the garden and for taking the dog for walks to the beach so will attempt to ameliorate this with strategically placed darts. If it was available in size 6 I'd exchange it.

The two pockets are large but not zipped so they're fine for a hankie but not ideal for such as car keys. The only other thing I'd have preferred is a small funnel collar rather than the plain round neck as I find them more flattering. This one definitely looks better over a blouse with a turned up collar than over a lower necked t-shirt. It'll be fine over a rollneck in the cooler weather too.
