BUYING A DUFFLE COAT
The duffle coat is a classic, practical, single-breasted coat with distinctive buttons, also called ‘walrus tusk toggles’ because they resemble the teeth of the glorious sea mammal.
Like many iconic fashions, the duffle coat was created by no single individual, and no designer can lay claim to it. Instead, the modern duffle coat forms part of the rich history and culture of British sailors and fishermen. This maritime link extends into military history too, the coats having been worn by the Royal Navy in cold northern latitudes. Loose fit, large buttons or toggles that can be fastened and unfastened whilst wearing gloves and a large wide hood were all created for comfort and ease at sea and in port. Although the duffle coat will always retain its bond to the sea, it has come a long way. These days, duffle coats are found on the city streets and at fashion shows as often as among boats and sails.
Buying a Duffle Coat is stylish and up-to-date
Combined with a wool sweater, a men’s or a women’s duffle coat with hood will serve you well throughout the cold winter months.
