Gabardine

Gabardine

Gabardine invented in 1879 by Thomas Burberry, founder of  Burberry fashion house, and patented in 1888. Due to the fabric’s durability and waterproof abilities polar explorer Roald Amundsen, the first man to reach the South Pole, in 1911, and Ernest Shackleton, who led a 1914 expedition to cross Antarctica wore gabardine clothing. Gabardine is a distinctive 45 or 63 warp face left-hand twill if single plied yarns are used or right-hand twill of a two-ply yarn is used as the weft. Gabardines are made from any fibre not just cotton.
