The Making of a Fieldcoat
Purdey fieldcoats are weather resistant, hard wearing and distinctive.
Purdey tweed arrives from our Scottish mill, and is laid upon the bench for marking out. This is done with great care, to ensure the lines and checks meet up.
Component pieces are marked in tailors’ chalk, and cut out with shears by hand.
Each set of parts is rolled and bunched. Once gathered in small batches, they are passed to the workshop for production.
A unique design
A number of finishers will work on each fieldcoat, following a complex pattern. The design has been developed to include useful features for the modern-day shooter, such as rubber covered buttons and internal pockets for carrying necessary items in the field.
Because the garment has a full-action back, there is plenty of room for the shooter to move comfortably whilst still looking elegant and traditional.
The final touch is to sew in the Purdey label and the coat is ready to journey to Audley House.
