The Workers Club
Men's Belted Mac (Navy)
Our navy belted Mac for AW21 breaks new ground for us at TWC, as it’s one of the first coats we’ve produced that veers closer towards the more formal end of the outerwear spectrum.
Made for us by the raincoat-specialist Mackintosh in their state-of-the-art factory in Cumbernauld, Scotland, the design is based upon a 1960s postal worker jacket that was engineered to protect the wearer from unruly weather. Staying true to Mackintosh’s strengths, the cloth is composed of two layers of tightly spun cotton that have been bonded together whilst the seams have been heat-sealed by hand. The result is incredibly efficient water and wind repellent fabric that’s relatively stiff and therefore reliable. In terms of the design, its key details include the double-breasted button configuration, which offers increased protection and warmth in bad weather, and a fully functional belt, which has a neat leather-covered buckle and contrasting brass eyelets that complement the navy cotton.
Elsewhere, there are two large front pockets, a deep rear vent, and adjustable cuffs. The undercollar has been reinforced with zig-zag stitching, which ensures it will stand up firmly in gale-force winds and has a removable throat latch. The buttons are sourced from our good friends Courtney & Co, which is one of the last remaining British button makers, who’ve developed exclusively for us a range of Corozo buttons we’ve named 'Blewbury', which is a special village situated near our shop in Goring-on-Thames. While they might be a small detail, they are by no means insignificant and we believe no element should ever be overlooked in the design process. All in all, the belted Mac is a timeless raincoat with all the bells and whistles you could need in winter. Spacious enough to be worn with heavy-duty knitwear when the temperature really drops, it can be dressed up and down according to your tastes.
