The duffle coat, king of the English-spirit wardrobe 

Among our selection of clothes and accessories in the English spirit, the unbeatable remains the duffle coat: named from the duffel wool that was used in its manufacture in the 17th century in Belgium, this coat worn by sailors quickly crossed the Channel to make itself known in England where he became one of the symbols of the sailors of the Royal Navy. In the 1940s and 1950s, it gradually detached itself from its military image and became popular among English and French students. Its success is well established today.
