W'menswear is a small brand founded by Lauren Yates focused on designing hard-hitting garments for hard-hitting women, developed from inspirational women through history who paved way for future generations.
The Safty Smock finds it's inspiration in vintage wet weather parkas used by the USN in the middle of the last century. It has most in common with the version that was used during the Vietnam war with details such as the shape of the pocket and the laced opening at the neck. The idea behind this garment is to be used as a protective outer layer that will withstand moisture and rain to a certain point, and if worn with a wool sweater it will be the perfect jacket to wear during spring and autumn.
The fabric used for this jacket is a waxed cotton made by Halley Stevensons in Scotland. It is dry to the touch and quite soft, and will withstand light rain but maybe not a heavy downpour.

All measurements are in centimeters and measured on a flat surface. Width is measured straight across the chest from armpit to armpit, length is measured at the back of the garment from the neck down and the sleeve length is measured on the underarm from the armpit to the end of the cuff.
