Traditionally made from a thick coarse wool cloth originating from the town of Duffel in Belgium, the duffle coat became popular due to the incorporation of a hood and easy-to-fasten toggles, by the late 19th century it was standard issue cold weather wear in the British Navy. Our version is made from heavy melton wool and is lined with cotton satin. Form meets function in the classic Iron Heart style.
