"The heartlands of the Cold Dark North cover the North West of the UK. The vast areas of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland are all subtly different but each best framed by occasional iridescent blue skies. This design was part of Zero Lemon's original work for the Colours jersey and we wanted to revive it as a gilet!"

      While we do our best to accurately display the true colours of our garments in all photography on our website, sometimes the actual colour may vary in real life. This is because every computer/phone monitor has a different capability to display colours, and that everyone sees these colours differently.

      Men's Size Guide

      The technical fabrics in this jersey are designed for movement, and will naturally stretch. It's why you may find you fit into more than one size bracket. So to help you find the best fit for you, we recommend you follow the steps below.

      HOW TO MEASURE UP
      1. CHEST: Start by measuring your chest all the way around at the fullest part with your arms by your sides. Don't rely on your shirt or suit size. Then use this number to see which size options you fall into from our size chart below.
      2. BELLY: Next, measure your belly/waist all the way around at the fullest part. This'll usually be around your belly button. Don't rely on your jeans or trousers waist size. Then use this number to see where you fall on our size chart. If your chest and belly measurements put you in two different size brackets, we'd recommend opting for the larger size.
      3. ZIP LENGTH: Use the number in the zip length column to work out how each size will fit on you, and make sure you're happy with the length. Keep in mind that our Foundation Vest has a high collar, so the zip will start just below your chin.
      4. FIT: Do you fall into more than one size bracket? Then we'd recommend considering how you want your kit to fit. Do you like it close fitting? Or prefer it a little looser? Make sure your chosen size selection reflects how you like to wear it.
      5. STILL IN DOUBT? GET IN TOUCH: If you're still unsure, email us on talktome@attacus.cc and we'll be happy to assist you. We'll always start by asking if you've measured yourself and where your measurements put you on our size chart, so it's definitely worth doing this first. We may then be able to offer a bit of extra guidance on how it'll fit.

        The technical fabrics in this vest are designed for movement, and will naturally stretch. It's why you may find you fit into more than one size bracket. So to help you find the best fit for you, we recommend you follow the steps below.

        HOW TO MEASURE UP
        1. CHEST: Start by measuring your chest/bust all the way around at the fullest part with your arms by your sides. Then use this number to see which size options you fall into from our size chart below.
        2. WAIST AND HIPS: Next, measure your waist all the way around. Then measure your hips, about where your hip bone sits. Then use these numbers to see where you fall on our size chart. If your measurements put you in two different size brackets, we'd recommend opting for the larger size.
        3. ZIP LENGTH: Use the number in the zip length column to work out how each size will fit on you, and make sure you're happy with the lengths. Keep in mind that our Foundation Vest has a high collar, so the zip will start just below your chin.
        4. FIT: Consider how you want your kit to fit. Do you fall into more than one size bracket? If so, think about how close fitting you like your kit to be. Whether you like it super tight or prefer it a little looser, make sure your chosen size reflects how you like to wear it.
