FROM SINGLE USE, TO LIFE LONG CLASSIC

When it came to designing our own Car Coat, we wanted to take this classic in a new direction. The design and fit would be as timeless as the icons that came before, but the fabric would not. We wanted something a little more innovative. Something more sustainable, but equally as high quality. The result is a classic gabardine car coat made with a recycled polyester and cotton blend fabric. The recycled polyester makes the fabric more durable and retains its colour for much longer, adding to the longevity of the coat. Not to mention it turns a single-use piece of plastic into a timeless coat that will last a lifetime.

WOVEN IN ITALY

Batch No.10 has been cut from a tightly woven and water repellent gabardine fabric woven by an Italian mill who’ve been designing and weaving luxurious technical fabrics for nearly 70 years.

VEGETABLE IVORY

For the Car Coat, we designed a completely custom button. Each one has been carved, dyed, etched and polished in the UK. They’re made from corozo nuts that are naturally harvested. Unlike plastic, our buttons are non toxic and biodegradable.

THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME

Most people know what a car coat is, but hardly anyone knows why it's called a ‘Car Coat’. Here’s why. The style originates from the early 1900's just after the invention of motor cars. At the time, cars often had open-top roofs so the drivers and passengers needed protection from the elements. And that's when the car coat was invented. At the time, it was simply a long overcoat that would be worn whilst driving to keep everyone warm and dry. In the winter, the coats would be made from heavy wool and lined with fur, and in the summer months they'd be made from lighter cotton or linen. The style caught on in the US and UK and it quickly became one of the most aspirational items of clothing to own. Though the use and materials have changed over time, one thing hasn’t: the name.

A CORNERSTONE COAT

The Wilton Car Coat is designed to be worn up or down, all year round. Whether you're off to a fancy dinner or doing the croissant and coffee run on a slow Sunday morning. It's one of many reasons why the car coat has been a wardrobe staple for over 100 years. It never gets old.
