The Batwing Coat is a timeless, practical and minimal design. A modern twist on the traditional English heritage rain mac, this features an oversize fit, batwing sleeves, a large hood and deep side pockets. Fasten by overlapping the front panels that button up on the shoulders. Long sleeves can be turned up to reveal the lining. The Batwing Coat is a popular companion on bike rides, dogwalks or anytime you want to be comfortable and dry as well as look good. Made in the North of England from water resistant British waxed cotton with slightly antique look finish, which will age beautifully with wear.
This is made using waxed cotton from Halley Stevenson, who have been making high quality cloth in Dundee since 1864. A classic heritage cloth, waxed cotton is water and wind resistant, but also breathes well. This makes it perfect for everyday wear, be that in a rain mac or a handbag.
Traditional waxed cotton should not be machine or hand washed with any detergents, as this will strip the wax coating off and may lead to uneven marks in the cloth. We recommend sponge cleaning the material with water, and mud/dirt should always be left to dry before being brushed off. Many of our waxed cloths come complete with a characteristic 'antique' semi creased finish.
Waxed Cotton cloth can be re-waxed after heavy use or when needed.
