Mercury Vest

Mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid at room temperature.  There are also unique properties to our Mercury Vest.  It has the styling of a traditional men’s vest in a wool flannel chalk stripe, yet sports an ultra feminine fit.  The buttons sit in beautiful asymmetrical handsewn bound buttonholes.  The black cotton back has 5% stretch to move with you comfortably.  The front pockets will carry your small treasures and a handsome pocket square.

Vests add panache to any outfit.  This one is divine!

Order yours here:


Woolenly yours,
Bree and Kyra

Here at the Vermeulen & Co. workshop we enjoy creating sculptural, wearable, sophisticated forms with textiles.

Several months ago we had the pleasure of creating in a different medium. Teaming up with the sharp eye of filmmaker Claudia Escobar and the quick wit of Heather Smith we made a short fashion film starring the vibrant Imogen Spear. It couldn't have been more fun!

Please join us in toasting the launch of our film, "Message in a Bottle," where we celebrate the beautiful City by the Bay and several of our favorite Vermeulen & Co. pieces. (In fact, all of the pieces the heroine wears are Vermeulen!).

Yours in Celluloid and Silk,
Kyra and Bree
