Men were seen wearing it on the bows of ships on the North Sea; and at Scapa Flow; seen going into No. 10 Downing Street. and not coming back out for days; seen getting into the back of Daimlers; seen at Malta.
Toggles instead of buttons (easier to operate in severe cold); densely thick protective sheltering wool; and lastly, character, lots of it.
