Farrell Dispatch Coat – Spring Summer 13


So this is our dispatch rider’s coat, the original starting point was a WWII British Army uniform piece. So it was worn as the name would suggest, by motorcycle dispatch couriers who had to get important messages from one end of the front line to the other. And it was all revolved around function. It’s all about concealing yourself from the weather. Concealing yourself from the rain. So we’ve taken all those original features, it’s still got, it still retains the original double bonded cloth, which is super rain proof. You’ve got the great huge collar here, which conceals you again from the rain. If I just snap this across, you’ve got the storm flap here. And then you’ve got the throat latch, which comes across. It’s got the buckle, so again that’s going to keep you completely weatherproof should you get caught in that “the Great British weather”, which is raining. We’ve kept the epaulettes at the top. We’ve got these the lovely three pockets from the original. You’ve got the map pocket at the chest and then you have the two hip pockets here. They all snap down so they’re great secure, nothing’s going to come into your pocket or get into your pocket, should you be walking down a London street. And then you’ve got the reinforcements at the pockets here with these triangles so that they stress point so there is no ripping or tearing. It’s got the double buckle on the belt here. Again it was all about security. It was about the coat not flying open when you’re riding your motorbike and it looked great for today as well. Buttons through the front and then there’s some fantastic detail to the inside. We’ve kept all the original leg straps and snaps. Again they were for kind of keeping the garment close to your body when you’re on your motorbike. So it was keeping it all to the original. So it’s just a really great, great looking, modern piece and it reference back to that WWII piece. Ah, it’s great for season in season out.
