Hailing from Glasgow, Finnieston Clothing offers functional lifestyle garments with a strong focus on quality and durability. They aim to utilise collections in telling the story of the industrial workforces of Glasgow’s past, with articles each carrying names and features that pay tribute to their home city and its heritage.
I was very kindly sent the Stobcross Field Coat from Finnieston this month, which they describe in their own words as a “masterpiece” and I’m delighted to announce they are not mistaken! The Stobcross is practical, well equipped and very versatile – the detachable hood means you can wear it in a number of different ways or to fit different styles. Constructed from Halley Stevensons 8oz Hybrid Aero Dry Wax Cotton, this field coat offers a tailored fit that is also extremely flexible, with the inner lining featuring a contemporary take on Dazzle Camouflage, with digitally printed contrasting geometric shapes inspired by paint schemes developed for use on WW1 ships. This is something of a calling card for Finnieston and a really nice feature.
At £300 they are competing with some of the big boys, but it’s testament to the jacket that it wouldn’t look out of place in a collection containing outwear from Fjallraven or Barbour – with several features such as the weatherproof dry wax finish, a detachable hood, and in addition a button and zip fastening as well as reversible throat latch for deflecting wind, designed for outdoor pursuits. It’s little quirks also mean you can dress it up or down accordingly, it wouldn’t look out of place at a match or in a trendy boozer.
All in all I was huge fan of the Stobcross and the brand itself and look forward to wearing some more Finnieston products in the not so distant future. Check them out!
