The Bolly Waistcoat is one of the two menswear pieces of The Journey Collection. Made with our Medium yarn and big needles, it knits up quickly. The classic style is brought up to date with an interesting zig zag detail at the hem reflected in the v-neck.

Bolly works equally well for women, worn with a belt over a pencil skirt or slim trousers.
