When you think of Duffle Coats a couple of things spring to mind Paddington Bear, maybe, or Alan Bennett, maybe even Arctic explorers, but one brand epitomises the archetypal British, good old Duffle, Gloverall. Founded in 1951, literally, from the words Glove & Overall, Gloverall has gained iconic status as a design classic with their coats still being Made in England.
Playing a key role in style and culture through the last 60 years Gloverall has become one of the most respected and loved British outerwear brands.
For Winter ’15, the launch collection makes a contemporary reevaluation of the monty duffle coat, updating the classic boiled wool style featuring appliqué racing-inspired motifs and pins. Additional outerwear pieces include a selection of all-weather raincoats, mid-length car coats, a wadded parka and the race-inspired Paddock jacket. The collection is completed with a range of casual utility shirts with faint echoes of the 1950’s alongside a handsome selection of aran and fair isle knits as well as a crew-neck cardigan emblazoned with the collection’s 1951 slogan.
