Simple, effective and… waterproof. We present to you our English waxed cotton jacket ! From the military inspiration to the choice of snap buttons, everything has been thought of to create a practical, useful and easy-to-wear piece.

Why did you work on such a piece? We wanted a jacket that we put on even when it's not raining and that would protect us from the rain with elegance. So that’s what we set out to do. And the result is there!

There is therefore no question of us moving towards a synthetic material which never seems to want to adapt to our body and flies away at the slightest gust of wind... No, we wanted a fabric with hold, which we wear while standing. feeling protected from the elements, on which you can rely. So we turned to the waxed cotton expert: British Millerain. Yes, you read correctly.

Since 1880, the English textile manufacturer has built an undeniable reputation. Quality, durability and innovation have made and continue to make them renowned throughout the world. Our waxed cotton is designed by a workshop with impeccable know-how, with a weight of 230g/m2, it has a very appreciable hold. There, cotton is densely woven before applying a thin layer of wax to make it rain-proof.

We feel the need to restore real usefulness to clothing. If this need is felt throughout our collection, it is particularly embodied in our waxed cotton jacket. A waterproof fabric in a timeless khaki green color that does not get dirty. Large pockets and a high collar. A straight cut.

Let's go into more detail. The cut is refined and wide enough to leave room for a flannel jacket or a chunky knit. We added a slit at the back to give a little more ease of movement.

The high collar has been designed to cut out as much wind as possible and retain the body's natural heat in cool weather; we have added 2 horn buttons to close it. The throat is closed by a rectangular zip (YKK house) directly inspired by military clothing and lined with press studs all along.

The cuffs are very practical, with snap tabs and a yoke that keeps the wind out, maintaining a certain hold when the tabs are released. Traditional darts have been sewn onto the sleeves to follow the natural shape of the elbow.

Finally, the pockets are multiple and of appreciable depth. Two side gusset pockets with double entry: one above and with flap to store everything, the other on the external side to slip your hands in. On the chest, a discreet zip pocket (always YKK).

Why no hood? Is it still more elegant to wear a hat or have an umbrella? That was our opinion. We can discuss it!

In summary, this jacket , like our military-inspired shirt , reaffirms our ambition to offer you essential clothing at the best value for money. Its multifunctionality makes it an essential piece, with a vintage spirit that is in keeping with the times while remaining classic. Our speciality. You like ?
