Ponte de Roma is the name of a double knitting technique that consists of two layers of fabric knitted together. Ponte fabric is tightly knitted, making it very durable. It's stretchy, soft, doesn't wrinkle, and has a naturally flattering drape, which lets these mid-layers crossover perfectly from the outdoors to the office, and everything in between.
Why Merino Wool?
MACHINE WASH AND DRY

Even after frequent laundering they retain an 'as new' appearance. They won't shrink, lose their shape, fade or color-bleed. They remain soft and comfortable for the life of the garment.
This wool vest is perfect for our Texas winters. I am 5'6" and weigh 132 lbs. The medium size fits me well. I love the high collar and the extra long length.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. This is a great vest and we are happy to hear that it is doing the trick for you when it gets colder!
I wore this vest last season and bought a second one in a different color for the coming winter. Absolutely no pilling or wear after using it for hiking, wearing to the office, adding a good-looking layer to a dressy blouse. Front zip for easy temperature adjustment, zippered pockets for phone or keys.. Stretchy but substantial, not confining at all. Best merino product I've ever worn.
We're thrilled to hear that this vest has been such a success - it's great to see a quality product that continues to be enjoyed year after year. Thanks for the great feedback!
Nice slender fit. Although formfitting, my phone doesn't protrude much from the pocket. Plus, what I consider a secret benefit; the inside of the pocket can secretly store, money, passport, credit cards, anything flat. Easy to wash and tumble dry without shrinking. Comes out like new. OK
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a great review! This vest is really a great piece and we are glad that you are finding use for the inner bonus pockets.
I’m 5’6”, 128lbs, 36-29-39 and I got a medium. The style, quality, and weight makes me love this vest. However, while the torso is a perfect fit and very flattering, the arm holes stick out to the sides because I’m smaller on top. A more hourglass figure would fill this out just fine, but pear shapes may need a tailor. Hmmm.
I love this vest. It is comfortable and adds just the right layer when you need to take chill off without adding bulk.
