Unisex navy cagoule/water-repellent fisherman's jacket from independent UK brand Yarmouth Oilskins, featuring waxed fabric, three-piece hood and zip closure. With a design taken directly from Yarmouth Oilskin's archive, this hooded smock harks right back to original and bona fide fishermen's workwear, and still carries a beautiful authentic feel to it. It's design is elegant but no-nonsense, practical yet stylish, and simple, reassuring. With a soft tumbled appearance of natural cotton, the fabric has a natural patina that can be topped up to maintain water-repellent properties with wax spray, a bit like a Barbour or other wax jacket. Built to run and run, this is the new Barbour jacket: a bit less country-fied, a bit more authentic, a bit closer to the workwear aesthetic.
Yarmouth Oilskins have been doing their thing for over 100 years now, and it hasn't had to change much since the start: still making the best-quality, authentic workwear products in the same factory in Great Yarmouth, UK with a team of 20 craftspeople they've had with them for the past 25 years. Working with British manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible, Yarmouth Oilskins are authentic home-grown wonders, creating traditional workwear garments built to last and built to work, all with a 21st century spin to their styling. Exquisite stuff. We love 'em.
