Five years post-World War II, H&F Morris, the folks behind Gloves and Overalls (that's Harold and Freda), stumbled upon a stash of surplus military Duffle Coats. These coats flew off the shelves in camping and leisurewear shops, and boom, a business was born! Harold, with some tailor genes in his DNA, and Freda decided to create their own Duffle coats under the snazzy name Gloverall. Harold, being the innovator he is, ditched those clunky jute rope fastenings, which were a pain to attach, and replaced them with leather straps. He also jazzed things up with some Italian check back fabric.
