Workwear continues to provide inspiration to contemporary garments, and the classic chore coat is a major point of inspiration. A Vontade offers a renewed spin on the humble chore jacket, taking after early 1900’s French farmers jackets. Manufactured in Japan from 100% cotton hard twist oxford yarn, the garment features a point collar, parachute button detailing and two angled waist patch pockets.
The jacket also has a stitched seam that weaves all the buttons together, as per a vintage military technique often seen on combat jackets. The twisted yarn is primed for patina, and the natural canvas is sure to age beautifully. Ideal to wear over a tee or by itself, this subtle nod to the past is going to be a reliable wardrobe staple for the future.
