Gloverall is home to the original duffle coat design. Since its inception in 1951, the foundations of Gloverall have always been rooted in the sensibilities of British fashion and culture. They use high-quality materials and the finest fabrics to produce timeless clothing. Heritage and craftsmanship have always been at the forefront of Gloverall’s duffle coats, and this has remained unchanged to the present day.
They got their start five years after the end of World War II. Gloves and Overall wholesalers H&F Morris, Harold and Freda, were offered a large quantity of surplus military Duffle Coats which quickly sold out in camping and leisurewear shops. This success prompts Harold, son of a master tailor, and Freda to produce their own Duffle coats for their new company Gloverall. Harold decides to refine the duffle coats. He replaces the thick jute rope fasters, which can be difficult to attach to the coats, with leather straps. He also introduces an Italian check back fabric.
