1485 Field Jacket Preorder


The 1485 Field Jacket is based on a British Army jacket pattern from the 1960s which was originally made by our manufacturer. We have adjusted the pattern to be a better fit and have used premium British woven 100% Merino 12.5oz wool cloth.

A lot of work goes into making this jacket – four generous external pockets, two inside chest pockets and a rear poacher’s pocket. Zip and button front closure as well as a storm flap at the neck will keep you warm in a gale. Draw cords at waist and bottom hem and buttoned cuffs will give you the option of a snug or looser fit. Eleven rows of stitching at the collar for rigidity, gusseted cuffs, multi panelled sleeve for ease of movement. Corners have not been cut and skilled hands have made this jacket with expert attention to detail.

Our Field Jacket has history behind it. It’s made for us by Cookson and Clegg who have a distinguished background in military garment manufacture. They originally produced this pattern for the British Army in the 1960s, although not in such a high end cloth. The outer is a very high quality Khaki Whipcord, 100% Merino wool, woven by Hainsworth in Leeds, who themselves developed the first khaki back in 1899. The 95% cotton / 5% polyester ripstop lining material is made to current military spec and is woven in Burnley. However the Official Secrets Act prohibits us from revealing its intended use. Yes really.

All buttons and zips are British made. Matt brown buttons (as seen in two of the detail photos) will be on the production jacket, not the black buttons as seen here.

Sizing is consistent with our other jackets. We use 2in steps between sizings to get you a better fit – rather than the 3in many brands use. As a result you may be a XXXL in HebTroCo rather than an XL in some high street brands. What we do assure you is that if you’ve got another HebTroCo jacket, this model will fit you in the same size (though will be fitted looser to allow you to wear clothes under it as well.)

We’re offering the Field Jacket in both Regular or Long fit. The Long model adds 4cm (1.6in) to the sleeve length and 3cm (1.25in) to the body length.
