The French name for the classic chore jacket translates as ‘working blues’ 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.
Take a utilitarian approach to off-duty style with this cotton jacket from our workshop La Cabaña of Alta Costura in Lima - Peru. A unique piece for your wardrobe. It gives you a unique elegance with its classic cut.
When the heat of summer fades and the weather turns crisp, hopefully, it doesn’t come as too much of a shock. If it catches you off-guard, there are style moves you can make to fight the chill and look great, quickly. One such move is reaching for the ever-reliable, tough, rugged chore coat. With its roots as a classic working man’s jacket, it’s an enduring style that’s lasted through fast fashion cycles and emerged as one of the more reliable outerwear options for the discerning, style-minded guy.
Evolving their unique approach to contemporary menswear, Misericordia produce modern, functional clothing for every occasion. Embracing the smart-casual balance, the Toro trousers are a classically-cut example of fine tailoring. The cotton-blend weave welcomes a softness to the tactility.
Trousers that can be worn across both smart and casual occasions are the most useful, and this pair from Misericordia are a case in point. Cut in a contemporary slim-fit silhouette, the trousers are complete with a button fly fastening, four pockets, and cuffs that can be worn down or rolled up for an off-duty look. Repeat sportswear code with a loose t-shirt and your favorite sneakers.
The Greeks and Romans of the Classical period thought of trousers as the "garb of the Barbarians," from whom they vehemently strove to distinguish themselves. When, in the second and third centuries C.E., Roman soldiers, and later, common people, began to adopt trousers for practical purposes, it was forbidden to wear them on pain of punishment in Rome.
Times change, let's be true barbarians.
High-waisted pants are a feminine and flirty look. Trousers with a paper-bag waist cinch that waist in but offer some volume on the top and bottom, so you can tuck in a top without feeling too tight or exposed. Wear it with a belt it or not.
