Cotton Walking Jacket
Heathland Unisex Black
Availability: In stock
Brand: John Partridge & Co
The classic cotton walking jacket for men and women. Stylish, mid length and easy fitting, the Heathland is one of our most popular weather proof jackets.
Hand finished in England, like all John Partridge products, this all-weather jacket is based on our very first product from 1969. It is not necessarily fashionably slim but it is very comfortable, and will be in fashion for ever. We made them then and we make them now.
This easy fitting Heathland is simple and elegant.
It is best worn as a casual style over weekend wear- it is perfect for a walk in the country, or the park or just to the shops.
Like all John Partridge jackets we use British fabric from the North bank of the Firth of Tay. This fabric is pure cotton- double coated in wax- the outside fabric is plain in colour, or has a tartan finish, or has one of the many different finishes we use each season. The inside fabric is tartan to coordinate or a plain chintz where needed.
We apply a very soft wax finish to create a wonderful handle, and then we apply a special final process to create the best performance feel possible- bearing in mind that the essence of waxed cotton is that it ages well, it takes on the patina of your life. You should keep the seams well waxed to keep the water out, but the rest should reflect your own taste.
Sizes cover XS-XXL. Please use the size guide for details of your measurements. For care details please go to our Care page.
Only genuine brass is used to make our studs.
Little known fact- our studs have a double spring- these are inserted opposite each other so that in use they will flex easily. Normal studs use an S single spring which can have pressure breaks at the bottom part of the S. All JP studs are made in Japan.
