Hancock

These jackets are so hot.

HANCOCK is a British label that draws inspiration from Thomas Hancock, the English inventor who founded the British rubber industry. Originally trained as a cabinet-maker; in 1815 he is recorded as being in partnership with his brother Walter in London as a coach-builder. Hancock’s interest in rubber originated from a desire to make waterproof fabrics to protect the passengers on his coaches.”

“In the same year, Thomas Hancock patented his first rubberized invention, elastication for use in clothing – elasticated cuffs for warmth, elasticated pockets to prevent pick-pocketing (at the time) and elasticated waists for a more elegant silhouette. In 1825 he began working with Charles Macintosh to manufacture his double textured fabric.”
