For The NZ Jacket we have used wax from one of Britain’s oldest wax cloth mills Halley Stevensons in Dundee, The cloth will age and antique through wear to develop patina unique to you and your jacket.
The corduroy collar is pre-washed to soften and lift the pile before manufacturing. The jacket is fully lined in lightweight navy cotton, with internal game pocket in dry wax and an internal chest pocket.
It has the chunkiest antique brass two way zip we could find which matches the zip on our archive coat.
The Collar fastens with a neck guard , and the zip is covered by a storm flap that secures with brass press studs. There’s a pleated chest pocket ,plus two front bag style pockets with deep folding flaps.
We also make a detachable hood to attach to the NZ Jacket which is can be added as an option.
This jacket is intended to last a lifetime - and to just get better the more places you take it. Designed to last a lifetime – and to be passed on like a family heirloom as so many of our jackets were in the past.
All NZ jackets will be sequentially numbered by the maker on the inside label as they leave the sewing room.
Made in Great Yarmouth, Great Britain
