The 'Tomba Gilet' has arrived and is due to be distributed to stores towards the end of next week. [Stockists in ad above]. Our Down-vest as some might call it, is named after the finest alpine ski racer of his generation. Alberto Tomba was the dominant technical slalom skier in the late 1980s and 90s winning 3 Olympic Gold, 2 World Championships plus 9 World Cup season titles and for 13 years was the prominent face of skiing. He was also know as much for his carousing, womanizing and outrageous comments as he was for his skiing.
We would like to imagine he would have worn something like our Gilet while off the peaks during his many visits to the bars of Cortina or Capri. However in reality the Tomba Gilet' is more likely to be paraded around the 'George and Dragon' or local stadia.....but thats just the way we like it.
The Gilet comes in 2 colours Autumn Creme and Indigo Blue. RRP is £100.
