Ladies Cotton Ventile® Single-Breasted Unlined Rainmac
|Ready To Wear||XS/2||S/3||M/4||L/5||XL/6||XXL/7|
One of our most iconic and celebrated pieces of outerwear has been recreated with a slimmer silhouette, giving a more feminine shape to this classic style.
The Ladies Single Breasted Unlined Rainmac is a modern take on our factory's most celebrated and iconic piece, the single-breasted fly-fronted raincoat. Our factory has specialised in making raincoats such as this style for over 100 years; our expertise and quality of materials is unrivalled. The outer fabric of this coat is made from 100% cotton Ventile®, a signature Private White V.C. fabric, developed locally and with roots in World War Two and the British Military. This resilient high-performance fabric has stood the test of time are we are proud to use it in our garments today.
Ventile® is a densely woven cotton cloth which, due to the production process, is naturally waterproof. When water hits the material, the cotton fibres stiffen, completely repelling all traces. It is one of our most celebrated fabrics for its technical properties and remarkable durability. With additional design qualities such as a Prussian collar, welt pockets and copper hardware including one of our finest military-grade zips from RIRI, Switzerland, this garment is as stylish as it is practical.

Copper coloured seam sealing
We pride ourselves on creating practical garments, many of which are waterproof; however, once a needle has passed through fabric (for example, to join pattern pieces at the seams) it cannot be fully waterproof. For this reason, in many of our garments; particularly those that are crafted from Ventile®; we seal all the seams with our signature copper coloured tape. This closes any stitch holes and ensures a fully sealed, water and wind proof garment that will keep you warm and dry.
Originally developed during WWI in our very own city of Manchester, Ventile® is a densely woven cotton celebrated for its exceptional weather and showerproofing properties. Crafted from a yarn that swells when wet, the fabric was initially researched at the Shirley Institute, commissioned by Winston Churchill in a bid to create a woven fabric with waterproofing technologies. Today, Ventile® is a household name, used to create classic outwear silhouettes with durable, innovative properties.
At Private White V.C. we recognise the importance of quality, from the people we employ to the garments we create. That’s why we are proud to say we use only the best quality, finest raw materials available to us.
