Hancock behind the scenes

December 3, 2013

Here’s a lovely short film that goes behind the scenes at outerwear label, Hancock. In it we gain insight into the processes behind the construction of their beautiful rubberised coats, all of which are hand-made at its factory in Scotland.

Two generations of expert coat-makers work in the factory, transforming vulcanised cloths such as wool flannel, Cashmere, silk and cotton (which are bonded using the traditional rubber manufacturing process at an original Victorian factory in England) into contemporary and totally weatherproof outerwear. For more information on the brand, to see the full range and to find a stockist near you, go to the website here: Hancock.

    As beautiful as these are I couldn’t part with nearly a grand for 19th century weatherproofing technology. I once considered buying a Mackintosh for work but the smell of the rubber and the inevitability of me boiling in my own sweat really put me off!

    I’m favouring the Japanese labels these days who incorporate Gore-Tex and technical functionality into really smart jackets that are acceptable with a suit and don’t make you look like you’re going hiking or sailing as many jackets with the same functionality do.
