The iconic traditional Fisherman’s Classic Smock by Yarmouth Oilskins has been refined sympathetically to meet modern needs. Originally worn by seafarers and fishermen as a loose over garment to protect their knitted sweater, these garments were traditionally made from hardwearing cotton sailcloth.
The Classic Smock has an open neck and two pockets, made in 100% cotton twill and with contrast taped vents and cuffs treatment. Garment washing gives a pre-worn look and feel and a ‘lived in’ touch.
This smock is made from 100% cotton rigid denim weight 8.0oz gsm, supplied by a UK family run textile mill based in Lancashire.
The denim dye uses natural indigo pigment. The garment is laundry washed which results in shading and colour variation. These variations are intended and add to the unique characteristics of the garment which will continue with time and wear.
It is recommended that this garment be washed inside out and separately until no further colour is released and that discretion be used when worn with lighter clothing.
Made in Great Yarmouth, England.
We recommend allowing 8 inches chest width to allow for the smock to be pulled on overhead. So for example, if you are chest size 40in, go for L.
