Still cut and sewn in France using the same traditional methods and materials, this Dungaree Twill Workwear Chore Jacket is the perfect coat to welcome the transitioning weather. Since it’s unlined, it allows for garments to be worn underneath. It hides an interior breast pocket and the straight hem and regular fit ensure you won’t feel constricted if/when you happen to wear a thick button-down with it.
The dungaree washed twill took over from Moleskin at the beginning of the 20th century to become the iconic French workwear fabric. The dungaree twill fabrics are specific to the French workwear; it has a two ply warp yarn (two yarns twisted together) to ensure better strength and resistance.

The chore jacket was originally a garment worn by farmhands during chilly mornings on the job. The boxy number had the look of a loose fitting shirt, only it was heavier and more durable, making it ideal for layering and fighting off the elements. Today, many menswear designers have taken the work jacket, given it a trim and a bit of fine-tuning, and released a more style-focused version. Vetra still cuts and sews their garments in France using the same traditional methods and materials they did many years ago.
