Closing out our Autumn Winter 2018 Collection is our HANON Halley Stevensons Scanlon Jacket which is crafted from their waxed P200 Hybrid Aero fabric, offering a lighter alternative to traditionally 'heavy' garments with the same finish. The jacket arrives in a traditional cut, seamlessly blending hunting and work wear influences into a refined jacket suited to the colder months. Details on the Scanlon Jacket include two front patch pockets, a discreet vertical zip welt pocket on the right chest as well as a zip close inner pocket. A detachable hood features along with a robust double zip.
We've worked together with Halley Stevensons on a number of projects over the years with the likes of Fred Perry, Penfield, and Le Coq Sportif, but this is the first time we've utilised their fabrics for our own product. We took this opportunity to venture out of the office and head south on the A90 to the City of Discovery and called in by their Baltic Works plant in Dundee, a space they've called home since 1864.
If you aren't familiar with the Scottish brand, here's a little bit of history for you... Specialising in waxing fabric Halley Stevensons' craft itself dates back to the 15th Century, Scottish sailors would wax the sails of their ships with whatever materials were at hand – typically an assortment of fishy oils and grease - in an attempt to protect the sails from the harsh waves. Ships crews were also trailblazers on the proofing front as they would fashion capes and other garments together, in an effort to keep themselves warm and dry during their voyages.
Fast forward to the present day and Halley Stevensons still continue to roll their waxed fabric out of the factory and send it worldwide.
