Legacy Duffel Coat
"...their finest hour."
—W. Churchill (1874-1965).
It was standard issue to British forces.
Men were seen wearing wool duffle coats on the bows of ships on the North Sea, and at Scapa Flow; seen going into No. 10 Downing St. and not coming back out for days; seen getting into the backs of Daimlers; seen at Malta; seen at Sandringham, even.
Duffle coats came with everything adversity required: hoods; toggles instead of buttons (easier to operate in severe cold); densely thick protective sheltering; and lastly, character, lots of it.
A coat for dealing with adversity, and good times too.
