Impeccably made in the UK

Our favorite garment 

The iconic and traditional Fisherman's Classic Smock refined to suit the needs of today's customers.

This was the garment that sailors and fishermen originally wore as a loose-fitting garment to protect their knitted sweater, traditionally made from sturdy cotton canvas fabric.

The Yarmouth Oilskins Classic Smock has a spread collar and two pockets, made from 100% cotton twill and treated with contrast tape cuffs and slits.

The color, the feel, and the workmanship is simply "impeccable".

Each wash gives it a look and feel of previous use and a touch of "lived-in garment".

Manufactured in Great Yarmouth, Great Britain.

PLEASE NOTE ** this style is based on a traditional fishing robe, worn loosely as a protective garment over others. The fabric is not stretchy and is styled to fit over the head, so we suggest sizing it up rather than down, to allow for ease of movement and wearability.
