Regent makes another stellar entry to its flotilla of elegant waistcoats with the Guzzi, named in honour of the Italian motorcycle manufacturers who have been at it since 1927 (making them the oldest in Europe to maintain continuous production). Dusky, mellow moody tones play across both the front and back of this waistcoat, bringing to mind autumnal evening skies, the horizon burnt dully with the last light of the day — ideal for post-meal-cigars and boardroom meetings alike. A five button waistcoat (with points), and two welted pockets with silk linings, light-shifting maroon occupies the back of this timeless design, and the front combines a frisky charcoal with a glowing rust check that is subtle from a distance but becomes more vivid the closer you get. Its combination of 75% wool and 25% Angora (from the notoriously downy and soft Angora rabbit) ensures a refreshing ease to the touch. Pockets come welted.
