Arthur Beale Canvas Smocks!

Arthur Beale Canvas Smocks!
As Autumn approaches you will need some protection against the chill wind. Our tough canvas smocks are just the thing. The natural canvas will block out the wind and resist a quick shower without making you sweaty. The two front pockets are fantastically useful and there is a secret inside pocket too - ideal for keeping your reading glasses or phone handy. We have added a strong attachment point so you can keep your knive on a lanyard. If you own the splendid Leatherman Skeletool then it will...

Summer Holidays?

Summer Holidays?
While the shop was basking in 38°C we were as cool as cucumbers in the icy coast off East Greenland. Here is Integrity, the wonderful yacht built by Will Stirling, snugling up to the bergs. There were a few polar bears nearby but they caused us no problems. Arthur Beale's clothing proved just the thing for this adventure. My Devold Expedition merinos and our Beerenberg oiled wool pullovers kept me warm no matter what. The Gill Crosswind Salopettes were raved about too. I was also testing a few...

How about some top-quality compact gear that you can use onboard or ashore? How about this...

Slow Fashion from Arthur Beale!

Slow Fashion from Arthur Beale!
There has been a lot of talk about the fashion industry selling clothes that are so cheap and poorly made that they get worn just once and then thrown away. Their low value makes them of little interest to second-hand shops and the widespread use of plastic fibres means they won’t biodegrade. The designs are short live d, nobody w ants to be seen in last months designs. At Arthur Beale we believe in clothing that will last for years. It will never go out of fashion.
