Classic workwear shape with our stunning waxed canvas. This charcoal canvas displays amazing variation in color that just gets better with age.
This Gustin Chore Coat uses waxed cotton duck from the United States. It has a plain weave and is a solid 13.5oz to give it good body but not feel too stifling in jacket form. The base color is a pronounced charcoal grey. The waxed coating makes things much more interesting: the fabric ages uniquely to you, just like a finely tanned leather. Each crease, each bend, each event in your life changes the texture and color. It scars and marks as the wax gets rubbed and displaced, becoming slightly lighter in those areas. It’s truly a thing of beauty and will pair really well with crisp denim.
The Chore Coat pays respect to the long tradition of this style - functional and understated. Our version has an updated, cleanly tailored body with a length that 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. 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.
