Unisex cobalt blue explorer's smock from independent UK brand Yarmouth Oilskins, featuring waxed fabric, three-piece hood and zip closure, insulating wool lining and soft organic cotton hood and pocket lining. With a design taken directly from Yarmouth Oilskin's archive, this smock harks right back to Sir Edmund Hillary and other pioneering explorers of the last century. It's design is practical yet stylish, simple, but reassuringly warm and secure. This smock offers authentic vintage styling, with british craftmanship, and produced using natural materials. 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. At home in the great outdoors, as well as on the side of the sports pitch, this smock will stay with you for life.
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.
