The Oxford Cape was re-created in London by a team of fashion designers who are also avid cyclists. The group mastered the art of cutting and stitching in Savile Row, the renowned London street of bespoke tailors. The garment is manufactured in England using the finest waterproof cotton, JB Raver Tweed and the same vegetable tanned leather used for the legendary Brooks Saddles. Reflective JB Raver Tweed is a Dashing Tweed fabric manufactured exclusively for John Boultbee using the finest worsted wool yarns subtly combined with modern technical reflective threads, woven together in a traditional mill in Scotland.





Our JOHN BOULTBEE label marks a new course in the footsteps of our founder, John Boultbee Brooks. 

In the 1930s, when cycling was a major means of transport, and demand was high for all-weather cycling garments, J.B. Brooks & Co. also offered cycling shoes and oilskin clothing.

These included ponchos, sou’westers, galoshes, leggings and handlebar muffs. These items were manufactured to withstand the worst that English weather had to offer.

Since this time, the clothing and textile industries have changed much in their approach to technical outerwear. The overwhelming trend has been to move away from traditional designs and fabrics. Nowadays, the honest virtues of natural materials and classic garments are too often neglected in favour of the dubious benefits of newer textiles and utilitarian designs.

We believe in integrating the best of tradition with the best of innovation. Today’s resurgence of cycling as a means of mass transport opens new challenges for the purveyors of garments to a growing breed of discerning cyclist. JOHN BOULTBEE products will serve those who demand both function and style from their technical outerwear.
