Creating a simple design, or a plain design. Is there a difference?
We set out to make a new Icon, based on the minimal duffle coat, first seen a very, very long time ago- and made by us.
This Abberley duffel is unadorned, unaffected, a minimal design to express the essence of the Original and Authentic duffle coat.
It is not basic, it is elegant, it just looks correct. A design Classic, that enhances without ever shouting `Look at Me`.
To create a design that simply is right requires an understanding of the both the past, and where we may be going.
The Abberley is an echo of a coat we made before. It is like all icons based on the fundamental premise that it should do most things well and one thing brilliantly. It feels perfect.
There are no unnecessary elements. We have used the least number of components possible, including the finest recycled wool from near Florence, in Italy.
Being a simple design it is aesthetically pleasing, humble yet beautiful.
We re-examined our method of making to ensure the Abberley would meet our target of lasting around 20 years, be warm, be comfortable, be your favourite for those bad weather days. And it must be elegant.
The colours and textures are superb, as you would expect with Italian fabric, but the Abberley remains unaffected and unassuming.
Really rather nice.
And a great price for this quality of design and quality of product.
Mid length, typically 84 cms from under the base of the collar to the hem.
We believe in producing clothes that people need, that will last an exceptionally long time, are easy to maintain and repair, yet are soft to touch, comfortable and warm to wear, and are sure to be your favourite choice.
Every Abberley features a tartan lining, chosen to enhance the outer colour, and woven as a single piece, outer and inner together.
As the Authentic developer of the Original Duffle, we know that you want a loose, but comfort fit, allowing for layering with woollen sweaters that add to the genuine look that never dates.
