Private White VC Ventile SB Mac Coat, Midnight Navy

Private White's most popular design, the timeless, single-breasted cotton raincoat continues to be the cornerstone of our factory. We have been perfecting the Ventile SB Mac Coat's construction, pattern, and performance pretty much every day for the past 100 years.

Handcrafted using the world’s finest 100% cotton, Ventile®, it is both 100% waterproof and 100% breathable. The perfect garment for any individual, and fit for any occasion.

Private White have made (quite literally) millions of raincoats and they strongly believe that their Ventile® Mac is simply the best raincoat you will ever own.

  • 100% cotton - and in our assessment this is the best 100% cotton in the world.
  • 205 gsm (grams per square metre)
  • Fluorocarbon free
  • Ventile® was designed and developed up the road from our Manchester factory at the direct request from Winston Churchill during World War II. The final brief given to Manchester’s Shirley Institute in 1943 by the Ministry of Defence was to create a cloth that would help prolong the survival rates of RAF Pilots.
  • Ventile® was famously used in the first ever summit of Mount Everest in 1953
  • The mercerised yarns in the cloth are designed to swell when exposed to moisture which ensures unparalleled levels of resistance and protection from the rain for a 100% natural fabric (i.e. non-synthetic)
  • 81 threads per cm (warp)
  • 30 threads per cm (weft)
  • Wipe down only with a gentle brush

Josh is 6’2” (188 cm) and weighs 80 kg. He has a 40” chest and a 27.5” sleeve (from shoulder to cuff).
