Chore Jacket - Seersucker Stripes - White x Black

Still cut and sewn in France using the same traditional methods and materials, this lightweight Cotton seersucker jacket is the perfect piece to welcome the warmer 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.

Seersucker originates from the Hindustani words shîr and shakar, literally meaning milk and sugar, from the resemblance of its smooth and rough stripes to the smooth texture of milk and the bumpy texture of sugar, respectively. During the British  colonial period, seersucker was a popular material in Britain's warm weather colonies like in British India.

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.
