Duffle coat is a large woolen jacket with a hood, reaching down to the thighs or the knee. It isastened with frogging made of olive-shaped braid pulled through buttonholes made of loops of braid or leather. In its most classic version, it is made of camel skin, in different colors, or some other heavy fabric. It was originally worn by members of the British military marines. It owes its name, Montgomery, to the English general Bernard Law Montgomery, winner of the battle of El Alamein, who used to wear one during World War II over his military uniform. Its success continued into peacetime, when the left-over models were sold to the public and the Montgomery became an essential (but above all comfortable) garment in the wardrobe of both men and women, worn in particular by generations of high school and university students in the late 1940s and 1950s. It is still largely used.
