The crew were let by Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, CVO, OBE FRGS, an Anglo-Irish polar explorer who, in all, led three British expeditions to the Antarctic and was one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic.
The version of very fitted waistcoat illustrated is cut from Battered Horsehide, chosen for it's waterproof qualities, with a heavy wool back with an adjustable centre back cinch belt to help repel draughts, lined in heavy cotton "ticking" and fitted with larger than usual buttons and buttonholes for ease of use while wearing gloves. It's cut higher at the front and with more length than a suit waistcoat, while the pockets are deeper and more practical than those found in most waistcoats
Typically, back in the day, this type of garment was worn a part of layering against the elements, probably over a roll neck sweater and under a heavy duty jacket but o stylish waistcoat would be no less effective as a three season garment worn over a shirt as protection from the chill of evening.
After one of our staff road tested a Battered Horsehide Shackleton for a while we feel this leather is slightly heavy for the waistcoat. So the advised choice of leather is Battered Steerhide, which looks identical but without the stiffness of the Horsehide.
