Dan Pearson, well-known English garden designer, landscape designer, journalist and television presenter, recommends his Matt Fothergill gilet as an ideal gift for the man in your life.
Readers stuck for gift ideas have been emailing The Observer’s experts to pick their brains about gifts for food lovers and fashion followers, gardeners and home builders. Nigel Slater, Dan Pearson, Lucy Siegle, Jo Jones and Oliver Heath unwrap their festive suggestions, including a Matt Fothergill gilet.
Dan writes, “Glamour and gardening are not common bedfellows, but since I found my sheepskin jerkin many years ago in Brick Lane I practically never take it off and receive endless compliments for it. It is a warm and hard-wearing gilet, but stylish enough to wear out of the house, too. Mine is made by Matt Fothergill (www.mattfothergill.com)”
