From the iconic blue and white coat to the classic black and white, navy and grey are all set to return to the streets in a big way.
The latest is the Royal Navy’s new navy jacket, which will be officially unveiled at the Royal Armouries in Portsmouth on Tuesday, October 6.
The jacket is inspired by the classic navy blue and grey, with an emphasis on comfort and protection.
It is the latest addition to the navy collection of coat colours, which was first launched in 2009 and has since grown in popularity, with the number of colours currently available on the UK’s navy uniform increasing every year.
It will cost £50 (€60) when it launches.
Royal Navy’s first navy coat, which features a double-breasted version, will be made from a specially crafted fabric made of a blend of synthetic and natural fabrics, which is made with the help of the UK National Poultry Research Unit (NPRFU) at the University of Portsmouth.
The coat is currently being manufactured in France by a consortium of local suppliers, and the Royal Naval Institute of Technology (RNIT), which is responsible for the Navy’s defence equipment, will also make it available for sale in the UK.
A new version of the navy jacket will be available to buy from September, with a number of other coats to follow soon after.
“Our aim is to bring this iconic look back to the country,” said a spokesperson for the RNIT.
“The navy coat has been the perfect way to bring the traditional navy into the 21st century, and we want to be able to show people how much we value it.”
The new navy coat is expected to hit the streets of the capital, with new versions to be launched in other areas of the country as well.
While the new coat has received some early hype, it is currently only available in limited numbers, with only 30,000 being produced.
According to the RNI, the coat has proven popular with both men and women, with women in particular enjoying its versatility and the warmth of its woolen fabric.
Despite its popularity, the jacket is only available for purchase in the US, and some stores are refusing to stock it.
There have been suggestions that the new navy jackets will be replaced by the navy coat of honour, which has recently been unveiled by the US president, Barack Obama.
