Remember people, the United States was not the first country to do workwear. In fact, if we are talking age, France was doing workwear long before the US was even a thing. And it’s because of this long-standing tradition that brands like Le Laboureur were able to learn from those who came before them to perfect French workwear.
Started back in 1956, the brand that translates to ‘The Ploughman’ hails from Burgundy and was focused on clothing agricultural workers. These honest roots eventually attracted hoards of clothing connoisseurs seeking out authenticity in timeless clothes meant to look and feel better the more you wear them.
And it’s for these reasons we are honored to add this famed French brand to the Heddels shop for you all to enjoy.
Our initial offering includes; two pairs of Pantalon Droit Moleskine work pants in Black and Hydrone blue, and their instantly recognizable Veston Moleskine Chore Coat in Black.
The trousers which –fun fact– aren’t carried anywhere else in North America, feature a timeless straight leg with high-rise and a lil’ elastic in the waist which translates to one of the most flattering fits your legs have ever seen. Equipped with a button-fly, single back pocket, tool pocket, and chain stitching throughout, they are a perfect mix of hardwearing and dignified, ensuring they’ll be in your rotation for a long long time.
The jacket is in many ways the perfect chore and is all about form meets function. From its slightly rounded collar to its 3 exterior/one interior pocket, here’s an instant way to look put together without trying too hard. The roomy fit lends itself to casual fits paired with just a t-shirt, all the way to layering galore.
And the beauty of it all is, each offering can seamlessly integrate into a closet filled with contemporary or heritage wear, pairing beautifully with khaki shades, indigo blues, olive-y fatigues, or even just some plain ol’ jeans and sneakers.
Our initial Le Laboureur collection is available at the Shop. (Heddels Plus Type 2 members can enjoy 20% off).
