The Champion Coat is the ultimate piece for colder weather, taking advantage of the natural properties of wool (lining) and dry wax outer to protect from the elements. 

For this edition we have used a modern dry wax from famed mill, Halley Stevensons and fleece from British sheep (bi-product of our food industry) for insulation.

All the Champion Coats are sequentially numbered by the maker on the inside label as they leave the sewing room.

PLEASE NOTE: This item will ship w/c 13th November

Handmade entirely in our factory in Great Yarmouth, Great Britain.

Yarmouth Stores have manufactured Oilskin clothing for well over 100 years. Originally oilskin dressing was applied by hand to cotton calico in-house in our factory in Great Yarmouth. It’s documented that in 1953 the factory would produce around 2000 oilskin garments per week.

We’ve always made outerwear in ‘safety colours’ allowing the wearer to be seen in an emergency, but also in more muted colours when the wearer needs to blend in with the environment.

The Champion jacket is available in Crimson Red , and Sand.

The Champion Coat is designed using all natural fibres to create a wind and weatherproof smock that will keep the wearer warm using all traditional sustainable fabrics. We have tried to create a long lasting product with minimal impact on the planet using carefully sourced, traceable materials.

The jacket is made from a modern lightweight dry wax fabric, produced in Dundee by one of Britain’s oldest wax cloth mills. The emulsified wax finish cloth is lightweight breathable and weather repellent. It offers a soft tumbled appearance, keeping all the character of natural cotton. The patina will develop over time and just get better and better. The wax naturally picks up marks and creases through use, which adds to the character of the fabric itself.

The coat is lined with quilting using 100% British wool wadding for natural warmth and insulation , and a lightweight cotton, stitched in Lancashire, UK.

The sleeves have knitted storm cuffs in our signature navy blue to keep out the elements.

The coat comes with a shearling sheepskin collar, offering natural insulating properties and incredible softness. The collar can be detached with buttons. The shade of the collar may vary from skin to skin.

The leather cord adjusters are specifically designed and handmade for Yarmouth Oilskins in the Midlands, UK.

The coat also features our fish eye corozo buttons made in the Cotswolds UK.

There are two bellows style chest pockets with a buttoned flaps, and two lower pockets with storm flap openings.

The waist can be adjusted for fit with a draw cord tie.

The coat fastens with a heavy gauge brass YKK zip , protected by a multi stitched storm guard.

We advise not to wash the Champion Coat but to allow it to air naturally, and develop its own natural patina over time. Any serious marks should be spot cleaned. We also advise lightly misting the inside of the garment with our Garment Refresher to keep it fresh.

It’s waxed properties can be rejuvenated over time with the Wax Spray.
