The Quarter Zip Microfleece from Tombo


A balance of warmth and comfort

Tombo’s Quarter Zip Microfleece (TL95 men’s and TL94 women’s) provides a balance between complete comfort and warmth, says the brand. The TL95 for men has white piping down the sides of the body, picking out the garment’s silhouette, while the fleece for women is cut to flatter the female body form, with subtle white contrast piping against either the black or the navy drawing the eye to the waist. This style is available in navy/navy/white (piping) and black/black/white colourways and, for men only, black/red/white.
