I’m going to head to the maker’s shop to get a good look at this Crompton wax-coated cotton fishtail parka by Joe & Co.
Joe & Co is a retailer of timeless classics, with one retail outlet in Altrincham in Cheshire, as well as a website for the range. That range is sustainable British, Italian and Japanese raw Selvedge Denim, as well as classic clothing hand-crafted in the old mill towns and villages of northwest England.
Small runs, high quality, you know the kind of thing. The kind of thing this website writes about on a regular basis. Clothing that’s built to last in terms of look and construction.
Do check out the website, but I thought I would start with something that pretty much sums up the label (outside of the denim): this wax-coated cotton fishtail parka.
It’s an oversized parka designed for layering up underneath in colder weather. If you don’t want oversized, you might want to size down.
As for the design, it is made from British Millerain wax-coated cotton from the original manufacturers of waxed cotton in Rochdale, Lancashire, finished with natural corozo nut buttons, a drawstring hood and waist, double cuff fastening and of course, the fishtail.
It’s a limited edition, and, looking at the website, it might not be a ‘stock’ item – I would recommend contacting them via the website before you order if you want it soon (or visit the shop to see if it’s there). Regardless of lead time, the coat sells for £320. As I said, so check out the rest of the range, too.
