The Oratory Jacket is Brompton’s first piece of clothing. It is a relaxed light brown cord traditional style two-button jacket, which has been designed with a host of concealed features and is cleverly cut to ensure it is robust enough for both city commuting and all-day use.
The jacket is made from Epic cotton, which provides total protection from the elements whilst also offering sufficient poise for more formal occasions. There are zips under the arms for ventilation, as well as pockets for your travel card and valuables. Reflective features can be found on the lapel as well as the cuffs, and there is a specially designed piece of reflective fabric that folds out at the back and is held down by magnets. As well as these features, we have borrowed a tailoring trick to create the action back. This allows the back to open up slightly when you’re cycling so that you avoid that tight feeling common when wearing a suit jacket whilst cycling.
