Shooting Vest / Gillet
After significant research with our regular shooting customers we designed a garment to include all the essential features; Bellow Pockets, Shoulder Patch (Optional) and for added style and fit, Adjustable Waist, Twin Vents and Lapels. An added practical feature is a special interior shoulder pocket to insert a recoil pad.
We think you will agree that the final garment is practical and elegant - designed to be worn for comfort as an alternative to a full shooting jacket over a sweater or shirt.
You can order your Shooting Vest / Gillet in any of our cloths. Add Breeks to create your Traditional Tweed Shooting Outfit or choose a Suiting, Coating or Cotton without the Shoulder Patch for an elegant and practical Gillet. Separate order forms are available for these different cloth types.

My classic men's shooting vest

The fabric is very sturdy for the field, yet elegant in an understated and manly way. Attention to fine detail in the construction of the garment is very apparent upon close scrutiny. The tailoring is astounding, rendering the perfect fit. In my view Bookster is an inspiration in what they represent and what they deliver!
P.S. Michele provided exceptional customer service. I was fully confident that the final product would fulfill my expectations. In fact hey were exceeded.

Received my shooting vest last week, earlier than the advertised time which was nice. Fit was just right. Finish and quality of workmanship was excellent. Lovat's Kirkton 567 tweed (Bookster's Awe) is one of the most beautiful country tweeds out there. Even if you are not a shooter, this vest is stylish enough to be worn on its own. This was my first Bookster garment and am looking forward to future purchases.
