Classic chore jacket in cotton working blues
The French name for the classic chore jacket translates as ‘working jacket’ and is, in fact, a catch all for the indigo-dyed cotton overalls popularised by French factory workers in the late 1800s.
It is essentially uniform wear: a type of minimalistic garment that can be mixed with many different outfits – worn above a simple white tee in summer or under a coat in winter, for instance. It’s also versatile enough to style as you wish: all opened, all buttoned down, or collar up with the two upper buttons down.
The high strength of its fabric provides very good protection in every use. Plus, it’s versatile enough to make it appropriate for almost any situation, and it’ll last you forever.
Simple, distinctive and hard-wearing, it’s a great spring jacket.
