Unlike the classic styled lab coat which has been in existence for centuries, the Howie coat has merely been around for less that 40 years. We have created our own twist on the traditional Howie Lab Coat giving extra style to extra protection. The DR4 Unisex Howie Lab Coat is designed to fit most male and female body shapes with its relaxed and classic design. The fabric weight is 245gsm with a pre-shrunk 65% polyester and 35% cotton blend making it robust and durable for any lab, medical or industrial work environment. Because of its mandarin collar, knitted cuffs and cross over concealed closing, the DR4 offers increased protection against non-chemical spills and dust to clothing underneath over a standard V-neck lab coat. The coat length sits just below the knee area based on the average size for a women in the US of 5'4" and at knee length for the average male size of 5'9". Comes with 3 pockets. 2 hip pockets and one chest pocket with pen holder providing ample room for carrying all necessary elements. The garment closes over with concealed studs making it easier for quick closure and release. Suitable for wash of up to 60 degrees. Low shrinkage.

The DR4 Unisex Howie Lab Coat takes inspiration from Charles Darwin, an English naturalist and geologist who is best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He laid down the framework for the theory of evolution during a time when most people took the Bible as the infallible. In fact, Darwin was trained to be an Anglican priest and at the instigation of his father, he studied Divinity at Christ’s College, Cambridge University. Not the best student, Darwin spent most of his time outdoors, examining natural science and beetle collecting. However, it was at Christ’s College where John Stevens Henslow became his mentor, and after graduating in 1831, he recommended Darwin for a naturalist’s position aboard the HMS Beagle. The ship was to take a five-year survey around the world, which would prove to change the history of mankind. Darwin's exposure to specimens all over the globe raised important questions. The belief at the time was that all other species either came into existence at the start of the world or were created over the course of natural history. In both cases, species were believed to have remained the same throughout. In particular, on the Galapagos Islands, Darwin was struck by how the Find was different on each individual island. Noticing that it had somehow adapted to the different.
