Inspired by family heritage and born out of a devotion to British manufacturing, Private White V.C. is committed to producing quality everyday menswear using the finest British materials and craftsmanship.
The SB4 Unlined Ventile is Private White V.C.’s modern day take on their factory’s most celebrated and iconic piece, the Single Breasted Fly Fronted Rain Coat.
Product features include a Prussian collar, welt pockets and centre back vent, RIRI zip front fastening, and two concealed studs down the fly. The neck is proudly marked with a single ‘Made in Manchester’ branded stud and the outer fabric is made from 100% cotton Ventile® and comes with taped internal seams, making the garment 100% waterproof and windproof.
The collection is designed by former head of Dunhill menswear, Nick Ashley and directly influenced by Private Jack White (of the King’s Own Royal Regiment)’s own wardrobe. The result is wearable contemporary garments which balance both timeless style and functionality.
With a unique attention to detail and a clear tip of the hat to traditional menswear, Private White V.C. is a brand for the modern gentleman who demands integrity, style and durability from his clothing. The collection is available from Private White V.C. >>>>

Cotton Ventile® really is a superb fabric. Developed by scientists at the Shirley Institute – Manchester, then put into production in 1943, Ventile® was engineered to keep RAF pilots warm and dry under combat conditions and in the event of an emergency at sea.
