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.

  1. Top notch

    Really happy with this purchase. At first glance the 'Newtown Knit' appears too thin to be warm, yet the unique knit pattern traps air and provides excellent warmth, while remaining light weight. It's not itchy either like other knitted jumpers I own. It also repells water and dirt and holds its shape well. A great warm work jumper, can also be worn out as part of a smart casual attire. Thanks Driz-a-bone, you've once again created a top notch garment.
