SIZE

Eugène Le Moult had our original ROUND-LAPEL-ROBE made to wear at his château East of Bordeaux¹, which had too many rooms to heat fully!

MATERIAL

100%ᴾᵁᴿᴱ  Southern-Indian COTTON (as in the authentic British home-wear before 1947)
• from fields SUSTAINABLY growing cotton since at least 35AD (according to Roman Empire trade records)
• woven as in the original HERRINGBONE-LIGHT weave to P.Le Moult designs in nearby villages by English-speaking unionized craftspeople, descendants of the original weavers (in a state that has been alternating between soft-Left and hard-Left coalitions since 1957...)

MANUFACTURE

sewn up the coast in cosmopolitan Bombay in the English-speaking unionised workshop of close friends that we've been producing with since the early 1970s, conveniently easy-to-inspect on the main highway, a 20 minutes drive North of the international airport
