honestly don't see how i could be.
but obviously they're a lot more popular there than anywhere else.
weird mix of country people, people who are really posh and pretend to be country people and people who live in the city and dress like george costanza with expensive trainers
hunting jackets with the corduroy fucking collar.
Check out Ralph and Ted here.
One waxed, one quilted. CHEERS.
drinking your soya latte.
Anyone else, probably not.
he'd probably be one of those really loveable posh people, have a bit of a thing for me and invite me to come stay in his mini mansion. his friends would be awful though :(
we had to relax our no gilet policy for him.
that said he only wears it at work where a lot of people wear em cos it gets really cold. if he ever wore it out that would be it obviously.
that buttons up.
kind of thing you'd expect to see prince harry wearing out on a day out shooting.
awful piece of clothing basically.
if you're cold wear a coat. keeps your arms warm too.
Requested gilet/body warmers as opposed to fleeces for work, I happily obliged, they look good with the new branding! :)
He's a policeman in the Met but he lives in the countryside :/
My son has something like this
I always called them body warmers when I was a nipper. I only heard the word 'gilet' a few years back and thought wtf is a gilet, oh it's a body warmer, wtf do they call it a gilet. I've pronounced it as it's spelt, harsh g and t, like a good Essex lad should, yet after reading this thread before posting I looked up the word only to find out that it's pronounced jee-lay or gee-lay. Come on, I'm not having that. Jee-Lay! Sounds like a naff RnB artist. Getting snug in my jee-lay, getting cosy in my jee-lay. No no no. It's a body warmer and if you're cold just put a fucking coat on instead of a body warmer. What about your arms? I really don't get them.
He wears his when he's over his allotment growing food for the family and being all manly and shit.
Had to Google 'gilet'
I always thought it was the latter, but in that Alan Partridge scene she says the former. Don't know what to think.
and i am
I think I might know 2 or 3 gilet wearers
not for me tho
When it's all cold, like. That's okay. I'm cool with a gilet.
I particularly liked calling hyg and badmanreturns Ralph and Ted.
"Can you start the fans please"
Every time they wore it until they weren't my friend anymore
