There are pieces so perfect in their functionality that they become iconic, indicative of a period and a place.
For us, the chore coat in its many iterations is such - evoking the Industrial Age, a sturdy and no-nonsense garment from a no-nonsense period in history.
Ours brings together our favourite elements - a full, panelled sleeve that easily encompasses a knit or a jacket beneath, unfinished brass buttons that will wear their age beautifully, a watch pocket that just as securely holds a lighter.
Imagining it as we would have wanted, were we making it in the 40’s, we have added salt & pepper and a white Herringbone twill to the usual blue jelt, giving a staple design life amongst a range of ways to pair it.
Worn true to size it becomes almost tailoring, subverting the uniform of grey flannels and an OCBD into something robust and every day. Worn large it’s a light top coat with pockets a-plenty and an A-Line form that will cover a blazer with pockets to spare.
However you wear it, wear it hard. It’s workwear after all.
