In the 18th and 19th centuries the main fabrics for workwear was the 100% linen fabrics whose fibers came from Normandy. As time progressed, cotton blends were introduced and eventually many went to 100% cotton.

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.
