A Donkey Jacket is derived from the wool sack coat
worn by workers in the 19th century. There is often
a leather panel covering the shoulder blade areas.

I had not heard of them before today. I was in a charity
shop and saw it, my Mum couldn't believe it was
an authentic Donkey Jacket. The label inside has a
British flag on it and says ' Made by British Workers
for British Workers'. It was only £5! I obviously bought
it immediately. I also found a real sheepskin coat which
fits me perfectly and a 100% lambswool herringbone scarf.

I love charity shops.
