Oilskin clothing is fabric which has been impregnated with oil to make it weatherproof. It originated in Australia and can withstand any kind of weather while still being breathable.
This kind of fabric clothing is very popular among sailors since it protects them from the wind, rain and cold on the job.
Taking care of oilskin garments is very important to provide longevity for them. Garments made from oilskin like oil skin coats or oil skin jackets, commonly known as "oilskin" or "oilskins", can't be laundered using traditional methods not to damage repelling oil protection.
Australian leather hats
Australian Leather Hats | The Australian leather hat that is so popular today can be traced back to 1969, when Bill Conner introduced a lightweight leather hat with a shapeable brim. Following the 1988 World Expo, hosted by Australia, his design became recognized around the world as the original Australian leather hat. Thus began a new tradition that offered consumers an alternative to wearing only fur felt hats. For durability and convenience, many leather hats come with a hatband and a chin strap. They are usually available in various sizes, depending on the design. They tend to be larger than most European hats, offering extra protection from the elements. Both men and women enjoy wearing them, especially for farming and horseback riding.
