vintage french workwear jacket

De rigeur for railway workers in 19th century France and never out of production since, the workwear jacket (or chore coat) is a traditional garment with a dynamic, living culture of reinvention. While today you might use their ample, topstitched pockets for your phone and keys (or a copy of l'étranger) instead of tools, these jackets are nonetheless true to their essentially practical and robust origins.

Known as “Bleu de travail” (in French, work blues) for their distinctive colouration, our vintage workwear jackets are sourced and made in France from 100 % cotton drill, just like their ancestors. They can be worn all year round as a button-up shirt, open over wool in winter, and as a lighter layer with any summer tee- buttoned cuffs are tres chic rolled and the straight-sided cut is comfortably breezy.

Needless to say, one of these original pieces will serve you for many years, becoming softer in colour and texture with every wash as it reflects the history of your own use.

Care : This vintage piece has lived a life before you and may show signs of marks or fading. To ensure it survives on we recommend cold hand washing. However, like your favourite denim, you can preserve colour and condition by airing, more than washing, where possible.
