The classic style and elegant versatility of the Eighteen Seventy Five travel jacket makes it the signature piece of the collection. Handmade in Britain in the iconic cotton ventile® fabric, it is 100% waterproof with taped seams and features two oversized pockets along with two ‘RiRi’ zip secure internal pockets complete with two button fastening.
Ventile® cotton is a so densely woven that it is naturally waterproof. In the 1930s during World War 2, the British government called upon the British Mills for a waterproof fabric to be developed to repel all water, saving the lives of the pilots and soldiers.
In 1943 Ventile® went into mass production and the fabric is still used to this day as a water repellent fabric, brimmed with British history.
