TWO ICONS, COMBINED
The chore jacket. It gets its origins from the French mechanics and steel workers who wore them in the early 1900’s. Loose fitting, made from stiff fabrics, with big pockets for their tools. Ideal for working in. Over the pond they made a few tweaks to make their own version. An extra chest flap pocket. Metal buttons. So we thought we’d bring them together.
This fabric deserves it’s title. It’s super soft, long lasting corduroy woven by Duca Visconti Di Modrone in Italy. Each jacket will be garment dyed in one of five colours, as chosen by you.
MADE IN ITALY
A two-hour drive east of the fabric mill, in Padova near Venice, thousands of steel buttons were made for us by Cobrax, an iconic Italian button makers renowned for very high quality and patented designs.
The label inside is limited to Batch No.4 and tells a charming story from Duca Visconti’s history, illustrated by Tess Smith-Roberts. Read about the inspiration behind the label and see Tess's design process here.
THE CALIFORNIA OF EUROPE
Our jackets are hand made in a factory nestled away on a mountain side in Guimarães, Portugal. It’s a maker town. The factory is a small family run business that has been going for the last 30 years, specialising in jackets. They have a track record for supporting the underdogs. We’re proud to have our jackets made by them.
