Our Chore Coat serves as a great mold to fit some amazing fabrics. A herringbone may just take the spot as our new favorite.
This chore coat uses cotton herringbone from one of the finest mills in Japan. We all agreed that the Army Canvas was our favorite non-waxed version of the Chore Coat, until we found this herringbone. The pattern really sets this fabric apart. It lends just the right amount of texture and interest to the surface to take it from the ordinary to something much better. What's nice about the pattern is that it's not overbearing. The color is also spot on. It's a deep green-brown, very old-school army. The weight is right at 10.0oz, and the feel is substantial yet comfortable to wear right away. We're using our custom shaped and engraved Corozo buttons to finish this version off. The images speak for themselves - this coat is a great friend of denim.
The overall style pays respect to the long tradition of chore coats - functional and understated. As usual, we give our version a more tailored body and make sure the length hits in just the right spot in the middle of your back pockets. It has two full hand pockets on the lower front, each single needle stitched with bar-tacks for added strength. Up top, there is one chest pocket left open and secured with bar tacks. The other chest pocket receives a flap with button closure. Both are also single needle construction. An inside chest pocket lets you tuck away your wallet or phone. Flat felling is used on main seams and all pockets are clean finished.
Jackets like ours that are made in the USA using our quality of material and construction are typically priced at $260 or higher. The efficiency of the Gustin model, with your support, lets us do much better.
