French Workman's Jacket
Mondes à part.
A common thread.
The painter wears it for work, to cover his other clothes but also because it takes four hours for the studio to heat it up in the morning. He admits he doesn’t like to take it off.
The cowboy wears it for his morning ride along the fence line. Later, it will be seen slung over a post. Was it forgotten? By 4:30 p.m., it has found its way back onto the cowboy, just as the cows make their way over Driscoll’s Ridge. The jacket was never too far out of sight.
Lawyers and finance guys wear it when they have the good sense to leave the city for the woods. No doubt, they wear it to feel less like lawyers and finance guys.
All men have certain things in common.
French Workman’s Jacket (No. 6054). There are far more complicated jackets that aren’t nearly as effective or transportive. 80% wool, 20% nylon. Medium 541-gram weight (light yet substantial and warm). Relaxed fit. Rich brown color with light grey threads woven in. Contrast buttons.
Modest details include the spread collar that looks sharp when turned up, patch pockets at the left chest and hips, and one interior patch pocket inside the right chest. Great with jeans, cargo pants, and a simple work shirt or t-shirt. Imported.
