William Bill was among the first to recognize the value of the rich tones and flecking which is typical of this style of tweed – reflecting the gorse heathers and lichens on which the colors were originally based. Woven from 100% new wool, this cloth will be a pleasure to wear for a long time to come.
Brown Houndstooth Balmacaan Coat
The balmacaan coat is a long and loose-fitting style made with a thick gabardine or heavy tweed and characterized by raglan sleeves, a Prussian collar and hidden button closures extending all the way up to the neck. Made with a large brown houndstooth-patterned fabric from W. Bill, our version stays true to the original with a few modern flourishes. We've cropped the overall length slightly so it hits just below the knee, given the silhouette a more contemporary feel and added a quilted Thinsulate inner lining for extra warmth. The coat has two outer pockets, two inner pockets, single vent and button throat and sleeve tabs. WATCH: My Outerwear Collection
