Autumn Winter 18 Insulation

Keep warm and comfortable this autumn with our new outerwear insulation.

After looking at bespoke Aquascutum garments in our archive; originally created for iconic mountaineers, Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing, our Design teams wanted to bring this kind of technical innovation into the present.

This season sees the introduction of a new insulation, designed to keep you both warm and comfortable. This technology enhances breathability without compromising the level of warmth required for garments worn in low temperatures.

Uniquely manufactured, the insulation is created using a mixture of fibres that quickly move moisture away from your body to the outside environment. The material is cut with tiny apertures to enhance breathability without losing thermal performance, allowing you to remain at a consistent and comfortable temperature. The holes in the insulation are a unique size, small enough to allow air to circulate whilst maintaining its insulation properties, increasing the breathability of our jackets by over 30%.

We have applied this high-performance insulation to products in our latest outerwear collection. Choose from the classic quilting of the Douglas Padded Blouson to feminine silhouettes of the Clo Club Check Reversible Jacket and stay warm, comfortable and dry during any level of activity.

Ever since our founder, John Emary, produced the first water repellent woollen cloth in 1853, Aquascutum has continued to be at the forefront of luxury rainwear made in Britain.

These overcoats were further developed to provide WW1 officers with trench coats for battle. Along with practicality, the garment also had to maintain the elegance of serving officers, due to the 19th-century attitude towards appearance. The original model featured a double-breasted front and a belted waist. This shape was to sit comfortably over an officer’s uniform. The length generally depended on the preference of the individual, but calf length was most common to avoid trailing in the mud. The conditions of the trenches were poor. Passages were narrow, muddy and dirty. The trench coat was developed to deal with these conditions. The colour of the trench coat was also an important and considered decision. The typical camel hue was chosen to blend in with the terrain that the soldiers found themselves in.

Once the fighting was over, the trench coat still remained a strong symbol of war. Civilians wanted to buy into the idea of heroism and patriotism, in an ode to those who fought for Britain. Soon enough, the trench coat became an integral part of everyday dressing. Enter the classic Aquascutum Trench Coats we know today. Our core collection of trench coats have been crafted in Britain since late 1914. Currently produced in our East London factory, each garment has been carefully constructed by an expert staff member. Granted with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade, the factory produces 300 men’s and women’s trench coats a day.

Thanks to our diverse range of customers, each with their own unique sense of style, what was once a uniform, is now a badge of individuality. Shop our latest styles here.
