Chore Coat – Bespoke Moleskin


Handmade, studio visits required

Gift Box Available to buy on-line. Price included postage and packaging.


Moleskin is a 100% cotton fabric with a sheered “weft” to produce deep pile nap similar to fleece. It not made from the skins of the Mole animal. Nigh impossible to source, this “King of Cloths”, was developed in medieval times. From the “Fustian” family of fabrics, our 15.5oz./sq. yd. is a heavyweight, but does not require “breaking in” as it is lush, plush, durable and long lasting. Considered wind-proof with water resistance properties, we construct using a reverse engineering method to ensure you are wearing a coat that has a beautiful feel and a soft touch.

The following range of colours are available, Beige, Copper, Gold, Black, Navy, Burgundy, Olive Green and Gunmetal Grey. This is from a European mill who are producing Moleskin since 1777. This garment is extremely durable and although we guarantee for 5 years, Moleskin of this quality if handled with care will perform for up to 10 years.
