Insight & Inspiration

This beautiful garment is made with a vintage 1950s knitting machine. You might choose it as a warm and snug undergarment but it would work just as well as a simple top tucked into skirt or trouser. 

With its snug fitted shape it will keep you warm through the winter as an extra layer and work has a simple top through summer. A really lovely garment made using traditional techniques.

Detailed Description

Hen's Teeth is an Italian brand specialising in iconic timeless cloths that are made in Italy, the idea originated from everything you need in one bag, a kit for life devised by brand originator David Biondi. The Hens Teeth logo is embroidered at waist height, a nice little touch by the brand.

Made in Italy on original 1950s knitting machines this short sleeve vest reminds me of something my grandma used to have in her drawer. Updated with a snug fit to be worn as much as piece of outer clothing not only an undergarment the bodice features a woven pattern and is edged in a pretty detail.

There's a ribbed midsection and fine knit lower part. All with a stretch fit keeping this snug to the body, ideal for a close fit undergarment that will keep out the cold, especially with its long length.

Size & Fit Expertise

A stretch fit means this will fit all shapes and sizes but if you have a large bust you may find that the empire line sits on your bust rather than under it. Perhaps you won't mind this if you are wearing this underneath other clothes.
