HOLWELL 1.0 JACKET FROM OXFORD
July 2nd, 2019.


Traditional styling with contemporary design. This classic-styled wet-waxed cotton jacket uses traditional materials and manufacturing techniques, but hidden beneath the old-world look is a layer of modern technology.


The Holwell is produced by British Millerain, a company which harks back to a day when goods were transported by wind-powered ships. Their sails were made from cotton which was waxed to protect against the ravages of the sea; the material consequently found its way into the clothing which sailors wore to protect themselves from the same weather.

Respectful of the material's heritage, Oxford's designers have employed traditional tailoring methods to assemble the outer garment. For example, pockets are pleated to lie flat when empty but provide space to expand when full. The collar and accompanying (removable) belt are designed and cut in 3 dimensions, rather than as simple, flat panels. The labour-intensive triple-stitching employed in all the key and critical impact areas are both pleasing to the eye and highly protective.

Inside, it has a breathable membrane for added protection against the weather and a classic Oxford lining. The collar features a rolled neoprene finish and corduroy facing on the inside, as do the cuffs, adding to comfort levels. It has a big YKK No10 zipper at the front, handwarmer pockets and a short connection zip for adding pants. New Oxford Heritage press studs feature too.

There is provision for a back protector of and CE Level 1 protectors to shoulders and elbows as standard.

The whole jacket is CE approved to level A.

RRP: £199.99
