The Original Duster

  • One of our most flattering designs. The Duster Suede brings elegance with the subtlety of it's design. The soft A-line and oversized 'Scottish Widows' hood lend themselves to the weight and suppleness of the seude creating a piece that hangs beautifully but is also highly durable.   
    It's a classic shape that never dates, a pure, flattering style. Fully lined, it features an aditional toggle for full closure when fastened. The turnback cuffs are lined high so they can be adjusted to fit different arm lengths. A subtle coat exuding quality, it has already become a Douglas Attire icon.

The Douglas Duster in Suede...

With the Duster we wanted to create a coat that was both timeless and practical. Taking inspiration from the classic Duster coats we decided to stay true to simplicity of a single breasted 3 button design but cropped it to thigh length and gave it  a soft A-line for everyday practicality.

We decided very early on that we wanted a hood and that it must not be an afterthought. Many hoods today are either bulky and hanging off the back of the neck or thin and flimsy enough to roll up. We wanted the Duster hood to be aesthetically pleasing as well as being practical so the sketches began to integrate the classic Duster shoulder cover with an oversized hood. This is what gives the Douglas Duster its signature look. An oversized "scottish widows" hood when in use that lays flat across the back with a duster style lapel when not in use.

The final touch was the upper toggle which allows the coat to be fully closed in colder weather and brings the hood around into a soft cowl neck. And so the Douglas Duster was born. This coat has already become a staple piece at Douglas Attire as one of our icons.

 


 

"The Douglas Duster started life as a pencil sketch whilst I was sitting in Paddington Station. I remember it distinctly, as it was destroyed 5 minutes later when I accidentally introduced it to an entire cup of coffee."
