Ultimate Duffle from Nigel Cabourn
Duffle Coat Elicits a Rare Exclamation
Wow! I don't use that expression lightly, but what else can you utter when you see this duffle coat from Nigel Cabourn? It has to be the finest duffle coat around right now, if ever.
That great British military heavyweight of the coat world, the duffle, has been reworked by Cabourn in cashmere (cloth by Cerutti). The integrity of the original military duffle is retained in length and shape, but the quality and detail has been taken up a level.
Made in England, the coat has a double storm front opening, proper wooden pegs and jute fastenings and patch pockets. The hood and cuffs have adjusters.
I have quite a crush on the rusty-coloured one above. Duffle heaven. I feel a little faint, I think I need a sit down.
