Though Grenfell are world renowned for using their ‘wonder cloth’ to create classic British outerwear you may be surprised to know that for this season they’ve created a ‘hybrid’ garment that’s named after a legendary Rock-star. Combining two of arguably the two most iconic garments in menswear ever, the Clapton jacket seamlessly blends the three-button British blazer with the trench-coat using water-repellent Italian gabardine cotton and fine merino wool. Legendary rock and blues musician Eric Clapton appreciates fine luxury outerwear that’s made in Britain almost as much as he does a Fender Stratocaster, hence Grenfell bestowing the honour of naming their latest jacket after him. So with the clocks in the UK due to go back this weekend with a Clapton jacket on you really will look wonderful tonight from as early on as 4.45pm.
We’re so pleased to be stocking Grenfell clothing at The Sporting Lodge, we hope you like it as much as we do!
