Our duster coat is a long, loose-fitting outer garment that typically down to the knees. It is designed to be worn over clothing and is made from lightweight materials, such as cotton, making it ideal for protecting clothing from dust, dirt, and other environmental elements. Duster coats feature a button front closure. Duster coats are versatile and can be worn as a practical piece for outdoor activities or as a stylish fashion statement.


The history of the duster coat can be traced back to the late 19th century in the American West. It was initially designed as a functional garment for horseback riders, particularly cowboys and cattle ranchers. Here are some key points in the history of the duster coat:

  1. Practicality for Dusty Environments: Duster coats earned their name from their primary function: to protect the wearer from the dust and dirt kicked up by horses and wagons on long journeys across the open plains. They were invaluable for keeping riders' clothing clean and comfortable.

  2. Materials and Design: Early duster coats were typically made from canvas or linen, known for their durability and breathability. The coats featured a long, loose fit to allow for ease of movement while riding.

  3. Button-Up Front: Duster coats had a button-up front and a high collar to shield the neck and face from the elements.

  4. Evolution into Fashion: Over time, duster coats evolved from purely practical garments into fashionable items. They became associated with the rugged and adventurous lifestyle of the American West, and this association contributed to their popularity in mainstream fashion.

  5. Modern Interpretations: Today, duster coats have transcended their Western origins and are embraced as stylish outerwear pieces. They are made from a variety of materials, including lightweight fabrics for spring and summer wear, and can be found in an array of colors and styles to suit different fashion preferences.

In contemporary fashion, duster coats are celebrated for their versatility, timeless design, and ability to add a touch of sophistication to various outfits. They have come a long way from their utilitarian beginnings, serving as a testament to the enduring appeal of functional fashion.
