The Story Behind The Balmacaan

What is a Balmacaan Coat? Traditionally this was a men’s overcoat, a loose-fitting, single-breasted design made with rough woollen cloth. The first Balmacaans were made in the 1800s as a more structured alternative to a ‘wrap’ or ‘plaid’ shawls worn by many at the time.

The Balmacaan’s raglan sleeve shape reduces the risk of water penetrating the shoulder. A Balmacaan, usually made of Tweed or Gaberdine, is named after a former estate in Inverness, Scotland, around 60 miles from our Elgin weaving mill.


The Lining
The Balmacaan Coat is half lined with TENCEL Luxe – a fibre made with natural wood pulp from sustainably managed resources.

TENCEL Luxe is smooth and luxurious with a fluid drape.
The fibre is manufactured in a closed-loop process and is compostable and biodegradable, returning to nature at the end of its life.

The Button
Our Johnstons of Elgin branded buttons are made from natural buffalo horn and will decompose naturally when disposed of at the end of their life.
The Thread
The thread used to tailor our Balmacaan Coat is sourced and manufactured in compliance with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Restricted Substances List.
