We are not sure how this garment will react in the wash. It may shrink more than our standard drill so please ignore the care label sewn in the garment and use a cool wash setting initially.

Mistakes happen! We have just had a small batch of our Mess jackets made up in the wrong fabric.
Normally we use a cotton drill but these have been made in a heavier cotton duck. Not ideal but we are selling them off at a much reduced price so bargains are to be had.
They are otherwise exactly the same as our drill version.
Here is the description of the cloth:
"A tight-woven, bleached fabric called cotton duck. The creation of bags and jackets is a great use for this material. Duck cloth or duck canvas are further names for cotton duck. The weave distinguishes Cotton Canvas from Cotton Duck. Canvas has a more uniform weave than Cotton Duck, which has 2 threads down the warp for every yarn along the weft.
Mess jackets are the perfect versatile garment for everyone, from real life waiters to every random servant character who needs to look smart.
They were traditionally worn in the tropics by Military or Naval men in the Officer's Mess, hence the name.
Made to authentic early C20th patterns in 100% cotton duck with linked buttons.
