Style not fashion
Original Montgomery is the oldest surviving company chosen by the British Admiralty in the early 1890`s to make the first duffle coats. The duffle was designed to keep out the worst of weather whilst not restricting the movement of sailors. This first fabric was the same double faced material they use today, double-faced to create a true weatherproof barrier. They made duffles initially for the Royal Navy but these were ‘traded’ between officers from the Army and later the Royal Flying Corps. As a result during WW1 their duffles were made for all services. The first raiders behind enemy lines, the Long Range Desert Group later to become the SAS, used duffles as cover for the cold nights and seat cushions for the days travelling many hundreds of miles across the deserts of North Africa. Today, as in the 1890`s, they make all of their duffles in England - one of the few companies that still does.
