The History of Gloverall
1950 – 1970
After the end of World War II, H&F Morris were given the opportunity to purchase a large amount of surplus military duffle coats which they distributed among camping and leisure stores. As the coats sold out in record speed, Harold and Freda (owners of H&F Morris) were inspired to produce their own collection of Gloverall duffle coats under the new company name.
Expanding the business from exclusively duffel coats to producing car coats and reefer jackets, they quickly established themselves as a leader in British casual outerwear which soon led to international interest with Gloverall USA, Canada, France and Sweden among their biggest customers outside the UK.
By the time the swinging sixties had come around, Gloverall were being exported worldwide which led to the construction of a new custom built factory in Northamptonshire. As the brand began to design more fashion forward overcoatsand casual clothing, their popularity soared in the UK and across the globe. By the end of the decade, Gloverall were stocked in over forty countries.
1970 – 1980
In an unusual twist, by the mid-seventies Japan had become Gloverall’s biggest market, followed by North America and Scandinavia. As recognition of their export numbers they were placed on the Silver Jubilee Honours list, only to receive another royal nod later in the decade when they were asked to supply clothing for the British Transglobe Expedition which HRH Prince of Wales was travelling with.
As the times began to see a more relaxed approach to dressing, Gloverall responded with both men’s and women’s bomber jackets, capes, a broader range of duffle jackets and overcoats. By the time the eighties had come around, Gloverall were a well-respected name in Britain and further afield. During the decade, they won the first ever British Apparel Export Award, alongside being listed in the top three brands in the Customer Awareness League of British Outerwear.
In yet another nod from the royals, HRH Princess Anne visited the Gloverall factory in her first year as President of the British Knitting and Clothing Export Council.
1990 – Present
By the 1990s, Gloverall had expanded its range even further, now designing accessories including hats and scarves alongside the now epochal Gloverall coats. Alongside this, they started producing jackets from super wax, heavy duty cottons and micro fibres as well as coats and jackets in cotton cambric padded out with goose down, luxury fabrics, pure wool elysian herringbones, harris tweeds and cashmere mixes.
Furthering their association with the royals, by the mid-nineties Gloverall received another royal nod when they win the Queens Award for Export. Gloverall, now well established and selling in major stores worldwide, commemorates its Golden Jubilee in 2001 with a special edition Duffle coat made from 100% Angora wool.
In 2010, on approaching its 60th Anniversary, Gloverall reproduce modern versions of its iconic 1950s duffle coat with the original checkback designs, as well as the car coat which was popular in the 1950s when cars had inadequate heating. For Autumn 2015, Gloverall introduced their 1951 collection which took inspiration from a set of black and white photographs from the early days of the British Grand Prix.
Focusing on the reinvigoration of the Monty duffle coat , they updated the classic boiled wool style adding appliqué racking motifs and pins. In addition, other updates included all-weather raincoats, quilted rally jackets and sports car coats designed with premium British fabrics.
