  • 3 British brands to take your mind off Brexit

    blog2

    Posted on June 17th, 2016

      Oh but it’s all kicking off over here with the Brexit debate. And to misquote the lyrics from The Clash’s famous song, the main question is, “Should we stay or should we go?” Well, we’re not getting into politics here on our duffle coat blog. (Too much of a hot potato.) But with all […]

  • Princess Charlotte gives the thumbs up (well, a wave) to Leicester

    Posted on June 17th, 2016

    It has been quite the year for Leicester (where our duffle coat office is based). Not only did Leicester City win the Premier League, but we’re also still cashing in on finding the body of Richard III in one of our car parks. And the Poet Laureate – Michael Mopurgo – has even written a […]

Because after you’ve talked about sweaters, socks, carpets, scarves, rugs and blankets, what else can wool be used for? Well. […]

    blog

    Posted on May 13th, 2016

      We hate to jinx the British weather – it’s already fairly unpredictable – but we think the worst of winter is over. True, we had snow in April. That was a little weird. And although some retailers weren’t so happy, we were fairly delighted. Because it meant that we got to wear our duffle […]

  • Design details on duffles part 4: the extra cuff button

    blog

    Posted on April 29th, 2016

      The latest in our ‘Design details on duffles’ series looks at the two cuff buttons. Not one, two. A pretty unremarkable feature of the duffle coat you’d think. Right? Wrong. Well, only a bit wrong. We admit it might not be the duffle coat feature that causes you to swoon, but it serves a […]

  • The presenter, his pants, Leicester City and duffle coats (Or: Why Gary Lineker might need one of our duffle coats)

    blog1

    Posted on April 29th, 2016

    What do duffle coats have to do with Gary Lineker in his pants? You’d be surprised   We’ve all done it. Said something hasty that we later regret. And it seems that Gary Lineker, ex-Leicester City football club player and host of BBC1′s sporting programme, Match of the Day (MOTD) is wishing he’d never written […]
