Cotton/Linen Duffel Coat
The Duffel, Reissued.
It was standard issue to British forces, once.
Men were seen wearing duffel coats on the bows of ships on the North Sea; seen going into No. 10 Downing St. and not coming back out for days; seen at Sandringham, even.
Kennedy, over here, wore a duffel coat; the photographs show him
in it, deep in thought, alone, walking the beach of Hyannis. What was he thinking? He wore a duffel coat when he went sailing too, as any sane person would.
Duffel coats came with the stuff adversity required: lots of protection against the elements, toggles instead of buttons (easier to operate quickly), and lastly, character, lots of it.
Our reissued duffel coat supplies all that, with one key difference: it’s made of springweight cotton/linen instead of thick, heavy wool, so you can wear it comfortably when the mercury goes up.
Cotton/Linen Duffel Coat (No. 2307), in water-resistant fabric with a washed, worn appearance. Big pockets outside, two more inside. Rugged wooden toggles with wool cording. Adjustable, shaped hood that rides intelligently on your head.
As at home on Wall Street as it is on Wauwinet Road. Imported.
