It’s origins is back into the 19th century. Origin of the word is in Belgian town Duffel, a municipality in the Belgian province of Antwerp. The town gives its name to a heavy woollen cloth used to make overcoats, especially in the armed forces, and various kinds of luggage. So, yes, we are talking about the duffle coat. The etymology of Duffel is from “dubro” and “locus”, from the Gaulish dubrum, dubron – “water”.
