A Kate Sheridan staple, The Batwing Coat is a timeless, practical and minimal design. A modern twist on the traditional English heritage rain mac, this features an oversize fit, batwing sleeves, a large hood and deep side pockets. Fasten by overlapping the front panels that button up on the shoulders. Long sleeves can be turned up to reveal the lining. The Batwing Coat is a popular companion on bike rides, dogwalks or anytime you want to be comfortable and dry as well as look good. Made in the North of England from water resistant British waxed cotton with a slightly antique look finish which will age beautifully with wear.

Choosing between slimcut and original is not always just about what size you are, but on how you would like to wear the garment and what degree of oversize you feel at home in. Our original cut is the widest, most oversize silhouette and is as the name suggest the initial design of this coat. The slimcut was added later in response to requests for something a little narrower for a more petite frame.
This is made using waxed cotton from Halley Stevenson, who have been making high quality cloth in Dundee since 1864. A classic heritage cloth, waxed cotton is water and wind resistant, but also breathes well. This makes it perfect for everyday wear, be that in a rain mac or a handbag.
Traditional waxed cotton should not be machine or hand washed with any detergents, as this will strip the wax coating off and may lead to uneven marks in the cloth. We recommend sponge cleaning the material with water, and mud/dirt should always be left to dry before being brushed off. Many of our waxed cloths come complete with a characteristic 'antique' semi creased finish.
Waxed Cotton cloth can be re-waxed after heavy use or when needed. For top ups, we sell smaller tins here, which are heated in water bath and then applied to the garment or bag with a lint free, clean cotton cloth. It should then be left to hang dry for a recommended 24 hours in a well ventilated space.
