Nick's Design Notes: There are two times in life when a waterproof is vital - up a bloody great mountain, alone, as the dark sets in. Or walking from The Tube to that make-or-break board meeting, just the heavens open. I wanted a jacket that protected you in both scenarios. Super tough, but very simple & elegant. This is it. 

A smart, true waterproof to complement a suit and tie. We wanted to add greater longevity and a wider range of use too, so it can be taken on country walks and it's ok getting chucked into a pile in the pub.


Fabric is everything. What strikes you immediately is the beautiful matt finish, unlike most waterproofs that have that nasty plastic crinkle. It has fantastic structure - holding an elegant shape, even when folded or even crushed. It doesn't crease.

It is independently rated an outstanding 20,000 for waterproofing and breathability, rare even for hardcore mountaineering jackets.

There's a lot of thought put into the hood and collar. The hood is buttoned on under the collar and is removable. The crisp collar can be turned upwards if preferred. The hood itself isn't floppy, with a smart button closure across the neck. Italian cord adjusters and leather stops mean you can tighten it in heavy storms and stay smart.

As ever, everything is beautifully detailed, in a simple package. An zipped internal chest pocket maintains clean lines and protect your phone. There are flashes of deep red internal trim. The internal waterproof lining is has contrast waterproofing tape across the seams. A ticket pocket and two elegant hand pockets just where you'd want them.

As ever, we have built a jacket with room to move and room over a suit, and rated 20,000 breathable fabric. The shoulders and hood are pleated for movement and fit, with large rear shoulder vents to dump warm, moist air.

Lastly, the arms offer lots of movement, with more length and scalloped cuffs for extra protection.

Brilliant, beautiful, tough and understated.

Ideal weather range is 1c (room for a thick jumper or suit) to 20c, in all conditions including torrential rain and high winds.
