Private Jack White was a British war hero whose show of valor during World War I earned him the Victoria Cross. After his service, he became a pattern-cutting apprentice at a Manchester, England factory that he would later go on to own. Today, that same factory produces Private White's namesake collection, influenced by styles worn by the man himself and crafted with the highest quality possible from locally sourced materials. This tailored mackinstosh continues that tradition with impeccable design details including weather-resistant taped seams, a polished Swiss-made zip front and snap closures. It's constructed from Ventile®, a breathable cotton fabric woven so tight that it's completely weatherproof (it's been used by the British armed forces since the 1940s to keep soldiers both warm and dry). This is how gentlemen wear raincoats.
