The Marmite of the Bexley range is our Oxblood variation. A deep, ominous, purple-red with a bold black collar. Some of our retailers can't get enough of it and some won't go near it; it is the jacket that has polarised our customers more than any garment in the past. Crafted from 100% Millerain waxed cotton, the Bexley is completely weather-proof making it a great bit of outdoor gear for braving the elements.
The colour derives from a time when Ox blood was used as a pigment to dye fabric, leather and paint. The blood would change from a bright red to a darker hue as it oxidised and then to a deep purple-brown with further aging. Thankfully, no Oxen are harmed during the dying of our fabrics but it still takes a bold man to work an Oxblood jacket.
