Realm and Empire is a new brand to me, God knows how a brand this good has escaped me. I caught a glimpse of a smock on Instagram, it struck me as very similar to a vintage smock I picked up off eBay ages ago. And later, after a bit of investigating I found out the smock was one of Realm and Empire’s pieces .
The Welford Ground Crew Smock is inspired by the WW2 Royal Navy Ventile Smock worn by the sea born deck crew. The original was made to go over a uniform and helmet/headset . So you can imagine they were oversized totally unwearable for civilian goings on. Bearing in mind how much I was into this vintage nugget of gold, I couldn’t believe my luck that Realm and Empire had made a perfect modern adaptation.
Totally wearable and to be teamed up with your best denim and boots, there’s no need to enlist to the navy and worry the life out of your mum. The ground crew smock is available to us civilians to pound the streets in. Realm and Empire have kindly given us a discount code to share with you all.
Discount code is GTE15 for 15% off across the collection between 1st Dec and 15th Dec.
