Vivienne Westwood Loves
Originally purchasing surplus military coats after World War II,
Gloverall first produced what is known as today’s Duffle Coat in
1954. Taking the Duffle Coat from its Wartime role as a utilitarian
uniform to a symbol of 1960’s political activism, the iconic coats
are still manufactured in England using leather fastenings and
Buffalo horn toggles with a double faced check back fabric.
The Double Check Coat is inspired by a school-uniform, in
double-faced tartan cloth with hand-drawn printed graffiti tartan.
