Jacket Shirt in Khaki Wool-Linenblluemade
We love workwear at blluemade, but are always curious to imagine how traditional items can be updated to feel more contemporary. A chore jacket is a classic, but we felt compelled to transform the idea of it. Instead of the traditional pointed collar, we did our version with a tall neck that can be pulled up to shield your neck from the sun or a breeze, or worn flat, giving it additional versatility. The button cuffs can be turned up or worn down, and the patch pockets are a nod to utility. This jacket has a shirt tail which makes it look right under another layer, or elegant when worn on its own. Available in Japanese indigo corduroy and a khaki wool-linen blend ("linsey-woolsey" as American cowboys used to refer to it), also from Japan. The linsey-woolsey is marled for a beautiful, subtle appearance, and has the best properties of both fabrics--it is soft but strong, light but warm, and has incredible natural variation.
