From humble roots as a fisherman’s jacket in the city of Duffel, Belgium, the
aptly-named duffel coat is characterised by its heavy wool fabric, loose-fitting

construction and rope-loop closures in lieu of buttons.

Many duffel coats come with a hood, making them infinitely more practical for
cold and rainy climates. The traditional duffel is cut to drape over the body, as it
was often worn atop other coats for extra warmth. Modern interpretations will
tend to be more close-fitting, as they are expected to be worn casually atop

tshirts, shirts and jumpers.

Mackintosh

The mackintosh is the original high-tech coat, invented in Scotland by Charles
Macintosh in 1822 (note that “mackintosh” is now the accepted spelling). It

utilised a rubberised cloth and waterproof seams that made it impervious to rain.

Despite being incredibly useful in cold, rainy climates, the original rubber cloth
was found to melt in warm weather; so in 1843 the construction was fine-tuned

and the rubber cloth became vulcanised for extra durability and weather-
proofing.

The general style is quite plain; single breasted with two slit pockets, no lapels
and a stiff upturned collar.
