There’s a lot that the French do well. There’s the obvious stuff like wine and cheese and smoking cigarettes on a bicycle. And there’s the less obvious stuff, like workwear. The French invented denim and haven’t slacked off since, producing excellent workwear to this day.
French brand Vetra has a long history in the workwear business. The brand has been in the Beerens family since the 1920s. In fact, the Beerens destroyed the machines in their atelier to avoid collaborating with Nazis in 1939. Their rich history of resistance and craftsmanship lives on in the new Cotton Linen Twill Nehru Collar Workwear Jacket. This classic workwear jacket makes a nice summer layering piece and features a mandarin-style collar. With heritage styling and modern details, Vetra unites past and present in a breathable cotton linen twill.
This piece of workwear history is available for $195 at Unionmade.
