Something to wear over your overshirts and jumpers

Ed wanted something in a jacket length to wear over our big jumpers and overshirts, as well as with just a t-shirt at warmer times. Basically an overcoat-sized body in a shorter length.

Vintage hunting jackets that we’ve collected over the years gave us plenty of ideas to work with. A-line fit, plenty of pockets and a weather resisting finish that will age nicely – that was the design brief.

It’s in the details

295gsm Halley Stevensons P200 Camo Mull water resistant waxed cotton shell.

Blood orange P156 Halley Stevensons 100% BCI cotton lining for easy sliding in and out when you’re wearing lots of layers.

British-made plastic-free buttons made from horn.


Two generous handwarmer pockets with plenty of space to stash stuff. Securely tucked underneath these are two patch pockets each with enough room for a large smart phone or your specs.

Inside are two large buttoned poacher’s pockets that will accommodate a notebook or roadkill pheasant / nut roast that’s fallen off the back of a lorry.

150 years of waxed cotton cloth innovation

Dundee-based Halley Stevensons are the world’s leading manufacturer and innovator of high quality waxed cotton fabrics. With over 150 years of experience under their belt they are truly experts in their field.

We share similar values with Halleys; we both love making stuff in Britain, we value quality and both of us are striving to improve sustainability in the fashion market.

Using deadstock fabrics to reduce waste

To create the Jacksnipe Overjacket, we’ve been given access to some of Halley’s deadstock and roll ends of cloth that they were keen to put to use in making garments rather than going to clearance or disposal.

The lining is our own deadstock cloth, leftover from the 1485 jacket we made a few years ago.

By using this salvaged Halleys waxed cotton roll we’re able to make use of existing materials, reducing our manufacturing impact and costs. We’re passing these savings onto you. Win win.

Care Guide

Ideally you’re not going to wash a wax cotton jacket. Spot clean any bad stains gently with a damp cloth. If you absolutely must, it can be hand washed in cool water but do not spin it, drip dry only and definitely do not tumble dry.

Sizing Guide

In the photos Ed wears Medium. He’s 5’8″ and weighs 10.5 stone.

The Jacksnipe Overjacket is designed to be worn over other garments which means you don’t need to size up to accommodate your biggest jumper underneath.
