Gilet (French gilet, from Spanish gileco or
jaleco, ultimately from Turkish yelek) is a sleeveless jacket
a waistcoat or blouse. Currently, a gilet is a sleeveless jacket or vest. They
may be waist- to knee-length, and are typically straight-sided rather than
However, historically, they were fitted and embroidered. In a further
derivation, in 19th-century dressmaking a gilet was a dress bodice
shaped like a man's waistcoat.
Today, gilets are often worn as an outer layer, for extra warmth outdoors. Fashion gilets may be made of breathatex cloth, fake fur or knitted. Hunting gilets are often windproof, waterproof and/or made of stealth fabric. High end hiking jackets often have an integral gilet inside them, that can be zipped on/off. Racing cyclists use thin light gilets with a windproof front and mesh back. Shooting gilets are rugged and sometimes made of leather.
