The Knitted Chore Coat by London brand, Country of Origin, falls into the unusual category of “Workwear That Mr. Rogers Would Love”. Even in the neighborhood of make-believe, there is work to be done and Mr. Rogers was never one to wear crunchy duck or denim. But 100% lambswool? That would have totally been his jam.
Country of Origin is one of those rare brands that does all of their manufacturing in-house. Meaning that all that intricate knitting responsible for this coat happened in the C.O.O. HQ. They want your new piece of knitwear to last longer than the average human male’s lifespan.
Taking pride in one’s work and doing the hard stuff yourself instead of just contracting out to a factory is a work ethic that I’m sure would have made even Mr. Rogers proud.
The perfect choice for cold, but otherwise lovely days in the neighborhood.
Available for €265 (~$312USD) from Superdenim.
