An instant classic: that’s what we’re already calling this gorgeous StringStyle design, the Downtown Vest. Inspired by classic New York couture, this zippered vest is the ultimate in timeless, easy style.
The oversized Downtown Vest is a study in understated details. This deep-sleeved design is knit with Koigu Cashmere, dyed exclusively for us by the color wizards at Koigu in Canada, and Filatura di Crosa Superior, an unparalleled blend of cashmere and silk. The combination of these fibers creates a fabric that is at once colorful, warm, soft to the touch, and lightweight. The double pockets and the zipper ensure that this vest is as functional as it is chic, and the lush ribbed collar can be styled in a number of ways; zip up the collar for added warmth and visual impact, or leave the collar open to beautifully frame your face.
