Providing the next phase in chore jacket innovation is the Dehen X Division Road Knit Chore Coat 2.0 in Tobacco. Made by Dehen on vintage machines using heavy worsted virgin wool, this jacket has time-honored charm literally built into its DNA.
Featuring a button-up front and pointed collar, the only design flourishes double as functional details: 3 patch pockets – on the left chest and two by the waist. Don’t forget about the secret cellphone pocket though, one of the few reminders that this piece is indeed modern. Besides its distinct fabrication and color, what sets this apart from your run-of-the-mill chore would have to be the raglan sleeves which give more freedom of motion while subverting your sleeve and shoulder seam expectations.
Made in the USA, no details were left unsewn, literally, including the exterior elbow patches, brown corozo buttons, and of course, the oh-so-satisfying tailor-banded and taped seams along the interior.
Available for $465 from Division Road Inc.
