    I think the great big, thick one, like the one you are planning to buy look awful and should be avoided at all costs....but then what do I know about fashion?

    As for how it's pronounced, until recently the only way I'd ever heard it said was with the 'g' pronounced as in 'girl', so 'gil-et'. Then a month or two back I heard it said 'jilllllllllllllayyyyyyyyyyy' and thought it sounded so stupid coming out the persons mouth......no idea which is correct, but I know which I prefer...lol

    I saw a sienna miller style furry one in River Island a few weeks back, it was wool with furry patches on the front, i couldn't stop laughing at it, it just looked so utterly ridiculous. Normal sailor ones are fine though, gotta keep warm!

    It should be pronouced like jill - ay, but the *j* sound is like *je* in french If you want to be really ponsy, the *ay* should only be one vowel sound, a very short é :rolleyes:
