Taken inspirations from the period ruled by The Hanoverians, England's ruling family from 1714 to 1837 (resulted in 4 kings named George), 2 designers - Eddie Pendergast and Marco Cairns established The DUFFER of St. GEORGE in 1984, as a label of which to update traditional Anglo-Saxon looks with contemporary materials and forms. The result is a unique collection with a mix of new yet familiar look. The label has since gained a popular following not only in UK but also in Japan.
Similar to retail giant BEAMS, DUFFER recently created its down feather filled vest based on the classic Christy down vest by Wyoming's Rocky Mountain Featherbed. Feature a leather yoke around the shoulders plus a shearling collar, both added to retain body heat and keep out downdraft. A slimmer silhouette was introduced as well to reduce body heat lose.
Available in 2 colors, the Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co. x The DUFFER of St. GEORGE - Christy Down Vest is currently available at all DUFFER chapters across Japan, along with its specialty online store within ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
