Our Poacher’s Coat, made for men or women, is inspired by the overcoats worn by the rural working class in the late C19th/early C20th.
Available in either artisanal Japanese wool & linen (shown) or a selection of Harris Tweed, this one-size coat boasts fine details: a piqué collar (it can be raised and buttoned to protect the neck), an angled breast pocket, surgeon’s cuffs, two front flap pockets and a deep rear vent.
Like the woods frequented by poachers of old, the coat holds secrets - its lining is beautifully block-printed with a trompe l’oeil hare, pheasant and eel. They are pin-stitched, as ‘invisible’ patches, into the coat’s lining (calico or linen) and ‘hung’ from internal buttons. The block prints are available in a choice of colours: Black, Blue grey, Midnight blue, Raw umber or Venetian red.
The coat is timeless yet of today, with a handmade, artisanal feel. Depending on your preference, it can be subtly patched (1 - 3 patches of the same material) as if mended, or left plain.
As with all our garments, this highly individual coat is made entirely by the artist, Janet Tristram, at Bonfield in West Dorset.
