WHEN WE SAY that we make coats from the most incredible materials in the world, we are not suggesting that our fabrics are MERELY BETTER than what you might find at a store.
Our fabrics are something DIFFERENT ENTIRELY. Heritage, robust, handcrafted.
A Harris Tweed, woven by a solitary weaver in a croft in the Hebrides islands on a 19th century handloom, the fibers dyed to mimic the plants and lichens of the islands.
A military melton made by the same mill that made fabrics for the Revolutionary War and the campaigns against Napoleon. Made so well originally that a man a man would have a coat made in this fabric with the intention of passing it on to his children and grandchildren, a fabric that is still made that well today.
American tanned leathers from buttery deerskin to pullup cowhide that is “hot-stuffed” with an elixir of natural oils and waxes that create a gorgeous patina with age. Leather than is more beautiful after 20 years of being lived in, and that becomes more and more 3-dimensional to fit the exact shape and curves of your body.
The sort of materials that get better with age until the fabric itself becomes such a part of your life that you recognize yourself in the fibers as though you were looking into a mirror.
