The Back Story…
1939. HMS Ursula. Royal Navy. Silent Service. Famously wet and cold, submariners caught spray over the bows and conning towers on every watch. Legend has it that the commander of the Royal Navy submarine Ursula commissioned a special suit using the well-known English wax cotton material. This became the basis of the post-war trials jackets which took over the motorcycle market worldwide. These versatile jackets were used as off-road gear and weather-proof road gear. Though the intended use was more English country gentleman, these jackets were prized for their durable and functional good looks.
Waxed cotton is waterproof, lightweight and breathable, all at the same time - a goal not yet fully achieved by modern high-tech laminated textiles. Waxed cotton is a living material, and like all living things, with a minimum of care and feeding it will reward you with great service and a long life. This jacket is truly a favourite at the shop!
