Peter Storm Autumn 15
Finding its place on the football terrace in the late 70s and early 80s, the classic Peter Storm jacket doesn’t seem to go away. It was picked up again during the early 90s with the streetwear scene that emerged during the Britpop era and it’s still thriving today.
Much like an iconic pair of Chucks or a pair of DMs, the Peter Storm cagoule has never been the fashion of choice for Joes chasing the latest hype but actually the opposite. So take a look at the Peter Storm ‘Made in the UK’ range for Autumn 15.
Coined as ‘Outdoor Innovation’, Peter Storm was created by former Royal Marine Noel Bibby in 1954. Initially just supplying waterproof nylon rainwear, Bibby was credited with inventing the original cagoule in the early 1960s. It was named after the French word for a cowl or monk’s hood.
The originator of the 100% waterproof ultra-lightweight jacket, many have gone on to replicate the style, but none can attain the same breathable fabric and reduced condensation as Peter Storm.
Peter Storm jackets are most certainly Made in the UK. Using William Reeds, the UK’s leading technical fabric weaving mill, Peter Storm fabric is dyed in Ellend, Yorkshire before going to be treated and coated in Rawtenstall, Lancashire. Each garment is then expertly finished in the Midlands.
We’ve got no doubt it’ll find itself as an essential staple in a British youth scene soon but for now, we think the Peter Storm ‘Made in the UK’ range is a rain jacket must for any Joe. You can check out the whole range at the Size? Website as well as others with jackets setting back around £80.
