Chore Coat in Artichoke Canvasblluemade
Our chore coat is a new style inspired by a very old one. It's our riff on the classic French workwear jacket. We've taken our favorite tailoring details--flat-felled seams, four pockets, the bottom two of which wrap around the side, and one of the chest pockets is internal--and tweaked others like the collar shape to make this piece feel fresh. Updated in a unique, natural canvas, this distinctive riff on the classic style is the perfect fall layering piece. The cotton canvas we've used is blended with linen and ramie, a cousin of the flax plant native to China, for an unexpectedly beautiful texture. The weave is a tight "typewriter cloth," a Japanese style of fabric named for its similarity to typewriter ribbon. The dye process lends to subtle natural variation in color throughout this truly special fabric. The chore coat is available in navy and artichoke canvas this season. With the sailor pant in artichoke, it's a great matching set.
