Driza-bone History

Since its foundation in 1898 Driza-Bone has been an important part of Australia’s heritage. It has clothed the men who built the railways, roads and highways of Australia, served in the two world wars and travelled with the explorers —from the vast ice sheets of the Antarctic to the snowy peaks of the Himalayas. Growing with generations of Australians, Driza-Bone has earned its reputation as a brand that is trustworthy, dependable and here to stay.

Driza-Bone is hardwearing, outdoor apparel and authentic, understated clothing from work to weekend for city, coast and country. Today, Driza-Bone continues to use fabrics, finishes and manufacturing techniques instilled with the philosophy of simplicity, longevity and comfort. They will always age naturally to create a rugged style shaped by the life and times of their owners.

Though short-lived trends and fashions may pass, there is no right or wrong way to wear a Driza-Bone. As everyone who has ever owned one knows, the Driza-Bone is individual—and everyone has a story and the style.

Our History with Driza-Bone
We started retailing the Driza-Bone (the name can, and has been spelt in a number of ways including “drizabone”, “dry as a bone”, “dryzabone”, “dri as a bone”, “dry z bone”, “driazabone”, “dri z bone” and “dri az a bone” however the correct and authentic way is Driza-Bone) brand from our country clothing and equestrian retail shops back in 1992... since then we have seen a number of fabrics and styles come and go but the full length wax riding coat (also referred to as the stockman’s coat) has remained much the same.  

We no longer have our retail shops and we wholly sell online and ship all over the globe (including Australia!) Our long standing connection with the Driza-Bone brand means we feel unequalled in providing a knowledgeable and helpful service within the UK and Europe.
