The Morgan Motor Company and contemporary British tailor, Timothy Everest MBE have come together to launch an exclusive new ‘Driving Jacket’ design that celebrates both brands passion and shared vision for modern British craft.
The Morgan Driving Jacket is available in two styles and has been devised to complement the Morgan driving experience, inspired by
Timothy’s very own experience of racing the Morgan 3-wheeler. Applying the bespoke approach in his own unique way, Timothy has
created a design that is relaxed in terms of overall construction, yet surprisingly roomy despite having been cut ‘neatly’. Each design has
been cut from cotton-based cloths with added technical properties, and so incredibly practical, supporting any potential driving movement.
The first design is a single breasted 3-button jacket with patch pocket and which features a special key fob holder within. Special extended
‘gear-shift’ elbow patches have also been created and can be ordered as left or right-handed options. A trans-seasonal navy blue stretch cotton
twill was selected ensuring that wearers can get a full 9 months of wear.
Morgan also created a unique ‘eccentric’ button hand-turned in
aluminium by one of the factory’s designer-makers, and applied to each
cuff for true authenticity. The navy option features a vibrant red under
collar, and each piece is finished off with cool black leather trims.
The second jacket design has cut in a beautiful sage green stretch
corduroy and is contrasted with a canary yellow under collar, trimmed in
a sophisticated chocolate suede. Each jacket has been designed to
become more ‘authentic’ with wear, actively letting the driver create his
own future-vintage piece.
Authentic, practical and incredibly hard-wearing, this collaboration
brings together two stalwarts of British craftsmanship.
