Although it was founded just four years ago UK-based outerwear brand Hancock already has an impressive history. Named after and inspired by the 19th century inventor Thomas Hancock, the father of the English rubber industry who patented vulcanization and elastication, Hancock produces handmade men’s and women’s rubber-bonded coats in a factory in Scotland. “Our skilled coatmakers have an average 20+ years experience and when they first started their craft, had to undergo a three-year apprenticeship,” explains Hancock’s co-founder Gary Bott.
For AW 16 the brand offers eight core handmade articles and seven quilted ones, including its most iconic model, Article 41, a single-breasted concealed front coat with two welt pockets. New for the season is Article Q19, a quilted button-front bomber jacket, as well as a collaborative capsule collection with Post Imperial of quilted pieces with African prints. Also expect two-tone pieces in classic tones with pops of brighter color.
