"The Low Country Coat" In the late 1960's I acquired an original cotton canvas duck coat made in the 1930's, by Duxbak. It quickly became my favorite garment. Many referred to it as "my uniform"-- if I went,it went! In 2007, while attempting to replace my coat, I learned of the disappearance of these great canvas coats, there history, and -- in the process--the memories and stories from many about their grandfather's and great-grandfather's canvas "bird hunting" coats. Having enjoyed mine for so many years and not wanting to see this small part of "Southern Outdoors" lost, I am now proud to offer as Red Fish Brand Marsh & Field Clothing Outfitters these same high durability and quality garments. My pattern is from my actual, "taken apart", coat dating back to the early 1930's. I use the same primary and secondary materials as the original coats. I sew in and on the same extra large double-shell pockets,expandable double-entry game pouches and I cut a generous American-gentleman's comfort fit. I pre-wash, pad batch color dye and finish all materials, as well as cut and sew each garment in the Carolina's, USA. From early-season quail hunts on St. Helena Island to cold November mornings, "winter trout" fishing on the Coosaw River Bridge to oyster roasts with friends in the low country, my 1930's coat filled every need and seemed to get better with every passing season. Cut and Sew Features: Eight ounce double-thick Port Royal Cotton canvas duck cloth, front and back cargo/game pouches, inside leather match strike, adjustable back pack straps for easy carrying and bi-swing back and underarm gussets for shooting comfort.
