Norfolk Jacket – Donegal

£ 895.00

The Norfolk Jacket may well simply have taken its name from the English county but other sources suggest it was originally a hunting coat invented by the 15th Duke of Norfolk. More likely is that the forerunner was a uniquely pleated jacket developed by Coke of Norfolk, the Earl of Leicester, for duck shooting parties on the Holkham estate in North Norfolk. This jacket, equipped with capacious patch pockets to carry hunting and shooting gear, was belted to snugly fit layers of underclothing along the windswept north Norfolk coast. The current jacket keeps the functionality of the original pleats and vents, spacious pockets and adjustable belt but adds some racy colour mixes that the monarchs and magnates of that century would themselves have envied.

Description

Designed to be versatile for both town and country and equipped with capacious patch pockets to carry shooting gear. With functionality foremost in mind, the original pleats and vents, together with adjustable belt, make for a closer fit when in the field as well as giving rise to a most stylish garment.

Tailored in pure new wool Shetland-inspired tweed for performance and a touch of lambs’s wool for a more luxurious feel. Available in both mid-blue herringbone and in Donegal brown with a chartreuse pop, the fabrics have been nano-treated to repel moisture and dirt. The Norfolk Jacket features single breasted fastening with two deep side pleats on the back, allowing full movement, whilst the cuffs have been designed to extend over the wrist when shooting, exposing the stunning colour contrast

The idea behind the Norfolk Jacket is to take a traditional shooting jacket and blow it sky-high. The Norfolk jacket is cut for mountain or moor but stylish enough to turn heads in the watering holes of the metropolis!

The Norfolk Jacket uses lightweight materials but has added funky stitching buttonholes to ensure stylish design. The Norfolk Jacket is very well designed, the vented back offering space for extra movement. This makes the Norfolk Jacket extremely useful when hunting, going shooting or just being comfortable on one’s way to work.
