This West of England overcoating collection is all woven in Fox Brothers' Somerset Mill.  Fox has been weaving fine cloth since 1772.  The Cloth in this bunch uses 100% wool.  Using ‘Kersey’ yarn we have created a range of durable, yet luxurious overcoat cloths. The collection also includes the Fox Brothers West of England Covert Cloth.

The overcoating cloths take reference for Fox Brothers extensive archive held at our Somerset Mill. The cloths are classic and timeless using traditional methods that Fox have pioneered over many generations.
