Named after the famous Cornish beach, the 'Fistral Jacket' has a short, boxy fit and features a two-way zip front, simple hand pockets, and an adjustable hood and hem.
Named for its distinctive chevron-like similarities to the 'Herring' fish, there is certainly nothing fishy about this fabric. Herringbone is a staple fabric used liberally during WWII as the fabric of choice for GIs. This particular fabric is sourced from one of our favourite mills, based in Osaka, Japan. It has a two-colour printed camo finish, based on an old USA army design, and a soft dry handle.

Universal Works was inspired by David’s formative years growing up in a provincial midlands town in the seventies, part of a working class family that loved to dress well; seeing his Dad and Uncles in their work-wear and also when dressing for the weekend. Next, working as a sign-writers apprentice, whilst experiencing the development of eighties sporting and music subcultures. And finally a thirty-year span in the fashion industry.
From Paul Smith to Maharishi he gained an education from and worked alongside some of the best in the industry. With David’s life work reading like a description of the companies DNA, Universal Works is about the mixing of ideas; understanding heritage and context underpinned by contemporary needs and aesthetics.
We champion skilled, small-scale production. We produce garments in the right place, both in the UK and overseas, working only with factories we trust, admire and are proud to be associated with.
The company also gives us an opportunity to collaborate with amazing people from artists to writers and anyone in between, a process that inspires continual growth and education. Have a look at our Journal section to meet some of these people.
After initially selling to ten retailers, we have gained a substantial following and are now stocked from Los Angeles to Seoul. Our head office and web store is based in Nottingham and we have four Universal Works stores, opening in London on Lambs Conduit Street in July 2012, on Berwick Street in August 2013, in Nottingham on Broad Street in March 2016 and again in London Coal Drops Yard in October 2018.
