Always and only made in Britain / Free UK shipping

A luxury coastal classic, handmade in Britain, in brush-backed super-heavy (420gsm) organic cotton jersey.

There are lots of hoodies in the world. Key difference with The Easterly? It's a true English luxury garment, made by hand in Britain's most easterly clothing workshop: our very own atelier in Southwold, just yards from the sea.

Not only that, but the gorgeous brush-backed jersey fabric we use is knitted specially for us in the heart of England.

Practical, super comfortable, built to get better with age and to last for decades. Easy to wear, with twin pockets, generous hood and chunky zip.

Yacht-bungee drawstring on the hood is direct from a local marine chandlery. Zip and other fittings in antique brass. Under-arm vents in steel.

Generously cut for maximum relaxed comfort.

Orange bar tack detail on pockets. Luxury moleskin interior reinforcement underarm for eyehole vents.


We've worked hard to make our sizing system as straightforward and accurate as possible.

We provide a nominal traditional 'chest size' but we urge you to go by 'flat width' sizes. It's easy to do...

We recommend that you take a favourite hoodie or baggy sweatshirt that you know feels a good fit, zip it up and lay it flat on a table.

With a tape measure, carefully measure the width from side to side from armpit to armpit (where the sleeve joins the armhole). This is the Flat Width (see chart below), and it is the most important measurement.

If your favourite jacket has a flat width of say 62.5cm, then choose a Medium. If it's 65 then choose a large, and so on.

Bear in mind that our cotton garments can shrink a little in first washing (we recommend cold hand wash... and never more than 30 degrees).

All measurements are a guide only. These are handmade products and may have minor size variation. If you find you've ordered the wrong size, don't worry: return it to us unworn within 30 days and we will send an alternative size.

A superb hoodie

I first saw one of these hoodies being modelled by Simon in the summer at Southwold, in a pop-up shop in the old water tower. The bride and I only popped in as I was interested in the building, but we soon got talking and the quality of the garment particularly caught my eye. Not being able to see any on the rail, I was advised that the hoodie was not yet in production and Simon was wearing a sample.

When I got home, I registered my interest in the hoodie and was invited to pre-order, which I did. It turned up a few days ago and it is an excellent piece of craftsmanship. I cannot believe that it comes with a lifetime repair guarantee, all for just over 100 quid.

I have not worn it yet as it is boxed away ready for gifting to me at Christmas. Something to really look forward to indeed.

It is so good to think the clothing from Blackshore is made by hand locally and not in some sweatshop. Keep up the good work folks - you deserve to succeed.
