The Norfolk Jacket may well simply have taken its name from the English county but other sources suggest it was originally a hunting coat invented by the 15th Duke of Norfolk. More likely is that the forerunner was a uniquely pleated jacket developed by Coke of Norfolk, the Earl of Leicester, for duck shooting parties on the Holkham estate in North Norfolk. This jacket equipped with capacious patch pockets to carry hunting and shooting gear, was belted to snugly fit layers of underclothing along the windswept north Norfolk coast. The current jacket keeps the functionality of the original pleats and vents, spacious pockets and adjustable belt but adds some racy colour mixes that the monarchs and magnates of that century would themselves have envied. The fabrics have been selected in partnership with the illustrious Rake Magazine design team.
