In 1898 a British Sailor Emilius Le Roy envisioned an all-weather, indestructible jacket made of old recycled ship sails that were treated with oil. His first iteration that was dubbed the first ‘Driza-Bone’ unfortunately was pretty flammable due to the use of linseed oil. 

Later, T.E Pearson who was the son of E.J Pearson and the founder of Pearson Soap brought a consignment of LeRoy coats to Australia to rework the proofing process. It is this excellent formula that we still use to proof our coats today. 

Since 1898, Driza-Bone has become an Australian Icon being worn not only by stockmen but by politicians such as John Howard and George W Bush; Rockstars and models like Kate Moss and by the everyday Australian.

Whether it’s wearing one to drove a mob of sheep across the central plains or throwing one on to keep dry at the footy, there’s nothing more quintessentially Australian than wearing a Driza-Bone. 

Our traditional Oilskin coats and jackets are made from sturdy 100% cotton that is coated with our uniquely formulated oil and wax finish to give the Oilskin its distinctive weatherproof and breathable character. As a specialised garment, the Driza-Bone Oilskin fabric needs special attention to maintain its weatherproofing qualities.

You can learn how to look after your Driza-Bone on our Garment Care page.

  3. An excellent piece of Australian Made clothing
    100%
    I initially ordered a medium vest & it arrived quite promptly. When I tried it on I found it was too tight, I found this surprising as I only weigh 68kg after losing a considerable amount of weight(not intensionally) I found the vest quite tight under the arms. I spoke to a very helpful staff member & returned the piece to have it exchanged for a large size which has arrived & it is everything I expected it to be. An excellent piece of Australian made traditional/practical & efficient clothing.

  4. Gained a loyal customer
    100%
    I received a fleece lined vest as a Christmas present and was blown away by the quality and comfort of it. Unfortunately it was one size too big, but the gentleman on customer service was easy going and helpful and made it a pleasure to exchange sizes. Thank you so much, you gained a loyal customer!

  5. Amazed at the quality
    100%
    I was looking for a good warm vest for the winter months and I came across the drizabone. It was a little bit more money than I wanted to spend, but spend it I did and when I received it I was amazed at the quality. It feels well made and it is very warm. The longer back that covers your lower back is a god send and I can see many many years of service. I would certainly recommend this product.
