French Work Coat

No. 6063




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

Working Style.

I found this at a vintage store in Paris, tossed into a sea of French naval uniforms. What struck me first was the fantastic linen and cotton blend. A great feel. Side note: when exploring vintage lots, I usually lead with my hands rather than my eyes. The hands don’t lie.

This double-breasted version, based off an officer’s coat, was designed for labor (on vessel and off, I assume). The fit was loose for movement, the collar cut back to a band so it wouldn’t snag and probably, because it’s French, for looks.

If you’re feeling exceptionally provincial, you’ll wear this as your chore jacket and be the best-dressed DIY-er in the neighborhood. I find it most interesting when partially unbuttoned so the lapels fold over, and layered under another jacket or sport coat. Now the eyes are as equally intrigued as the hands. I’m confident you’ll work out your own style.

French Work Coat (No. 6063). 60% linen, 40% cotton that’s been stone and enzyme washed—exceptional feel, weight, and aesthetic. Twelve corozo buttons composed in an angled double-breasted front placket(interior security button). Flat-felled seams, band collar, patch pockets at waist, interior patch pocket inside left chest. The angled shoulder seams are shifted toward the back. For a less roomy fit, consider ordering a size down. Imported.
