The Norfolk Sea Cape is a one-size utility cape perfect for unexpected wind and showers. Often used for cycling, dog walking, riding and other pastimes.

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 cape can be opened flat and used as a blanket to sit on or to huddle under. It also folds down and stows in its own cloth bag.

This edition feature the Yarmouth Oilskins embroidered badge on the left shoulder.

Yarmouth Stores have manufactured oilskin clothing for well over 100 years, Oilskin dressing was applied by hand to calico cotton in-house in our factory in Great Yarmouth. It’s documented that in 1953 the factory would produce around 2000 oilskin garments per week. Capes have featured in our catalogues since the beginning as a practical weatherproof coverall.

The Norfolk Sea Cape - designed in collaboration with our friends at The Coastal Exploration Company.

We’ve used a modern lightweight 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 cape is unlined, with branded brass press studs under the arm , and a sturdy brass zip. It has generous deep welt pockets with a buttoned storm flap, and a three piece hood.

100% Cotton - Machine Washable. Do not Iron.

Wax finish can be maintained and restored with our wax spray.
