G'Day Cobbers! No Yabber, take a captain cook at Driza-Bone
Dunno if all you Pommys out there have picked up on Aussie style yet, but Driza-Bone is what you wear out beyond the Black Stump.
These are just bonza for the Pommy summer, when it ain't too cold but the drizzle can git yer gizzard, but you wouldn't be seen dead in some garish nylon anorak. But in winter, when it really chills down in UK, you just shrug on a pully and you'll be toastie warm and still DRIZA-BONE!
With apologies to all our Aussie mates, 'cos I'll probably get banned from 'down-under' after taking their language in vain, but Driza-Bone are seriously good outerwear, that perhaps don't get the exposure in the UK they really merit. These garments really are the 'real thing'. Used for decades in the outback in some of the toughest environments on the planet, by stockmen, farmers, bushmen and riders. They offer decades of hard wear, but also that indfineable Aussie style that's unmistakeable and unique.
Take a look at this traditional 3/4 length riding coat in heavyweight cotton oilskin above.
Called the Driza-Bone Waxed Short Coat, it's waterproof and breathable using 400gm/m2 (12oz) wax oilskin fabric. This is really heavy duty, using twin needle welt seams. There are two large bellow pockets, a storm collar, DZB's signature double poppered front closure, reinforced elbows, inner poachers pocket and adjustable wrist straps. The collar is studded for the optional hood, and there's an optional wool lining available too. The really cool bit is the doubled fabric sort of 'cape' over shoulders to let rain drain easily and to stop body condensation, keeping your shoulders warm, with underarm straps to keep it down in the wind. These garments are made in Australia in the same way they've been made for decades, in fact since 1898 when they started producing rugged oilskins for the clipper ships which plyed the trade routes between Europe and Australia carrying wool, wheat and livestock. So quite a heritage, but quite a style too.
But we've also got a good range of men's and women's coats, jackets and gilets and leather goods, plus some really rugged dog coats for those tough country dogs that are too cool to wear any lesser garments! Check them all out by clicking here.
