Originally designed for horsemen to protect their clothing from trail dust in the late 1800's, the traditional duster was then adapted and used for protection in automobile attire. We loved an original duster that we stumbled across, with its detailing and silhouette dating it around 1900-1915 and were inspired to create our own Metta Melbourne rendition.
In a lighter weight linen the Pinstripe Duster features a full button front, generous side-pockets, and raglan sleeves that are great for allowing cosy layering in the cooler months.
1915 Duster Jacket’s sleeves are finished beautifully with the same Japanese-made buttons (used throughout), and this finer Pin stripe woven linen makes the 1915 Duster a layering staple when the weather is mild.
Your 1915 Duster Jacket will arrive pre-washed, and the linen will be slightly crumpled. With each and every wear your 1915 Duster Jacket will soften, showcasing the gorgeous European Linen.

We recommend looking at the garment’s measurements in relation to your body, and also in comparison to a similar style of clothing you own. This is a great way of understanding the shape and size of a style.
Our linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning un-ironed look that we have all come to love. If you would like to speed up this process, we recommend popping it in the washing machine, following the washing instructions found on your garments care label, and skipping any ironing.
