It’s a trucker! It’s a coverall! It’s the Shockoe Atelier Denim Blouson. Blurring the line between traditional denim jacket styles, the Shockoe Denim Blouson is a straight-up classy and functional piece of outerwear, one that’s made to age as well as any solidly constructed piece of cotton-twill dripping in indigo. You can wear it to work, or to a semi-formal event, depending on how far along in its lifespan it is… mud-caked and faded might not be the best look to meet the parents.
The Denim Blouson uses a 14.5oz indigo/natural selvedge denim from none other than Collect Mills, the Japanese denim mill of legend. They’re made by hand in the capital of Virginia, detailed with contrast stitching, reinforced yokes on the front and back, Shockoe-branded coated black buttons that will chip handsomely with time, dual button-closing pockets at the hips, button-adjusting cuffs and hem, Shockoe Atelier tag, and an optional corduroy collar.
Shockoe offers free repairs for the lifespan of the jacket, so get to wearing, these things are best when worn and worked in.
