London, United Kingdom
"In 1950 out of sheer necessity, my husband Mr. Harold Morris and myself went into business as Industrial Clothing Specialists.
Gloverall of London were the first clothiers to make the traditional Military and Naval Duffle coats available to civilians … In the 1950-60’s the Gloverall Duffle became a sartorial Symbol of Social Renegades. Angry young men, art students, and Beatniks favoured the Duffle coat.” — Excerpt from the Gloverall Story.
We had the honor of collaborating with the eternal English clothier for our Ace x Gloverall Duffle Coat — an update on a true British classic. It’s a thing of beauty, and you can find it here.
The gamekeeper at dusk on a cold winter’s day, 1889, William Fraser Garden. English (1856 - 1921)
from The Face of Minnesota by John Szarkowski:
A woodsman from the northern border, on being asked the standard January question, replied that he would’t really call it cold – chilly perhaps, but not really cold: “Now in ‘44, there was a cold winter. For a few weeks there it got so cold that a man working in the woods had to run full speed backwards in order to spit!”
