Chore coats

Recommended Posts

We'll see how long it takes to fix the collar this weekend and if it ain't too long, then I will do it for some folks if needed.

I ain't gonna go through and fell everybody's seams though. That would just take too long.

Selling this (too big; check sig) but I thought a nice vintage jacket would be a nice addition to the thread. Picked it up from Crownzip a while ago, but I've lost some weight. Anyway, it's a sweet jacket.

How 'bout putting up some side by side before and after shots of the collar?

Great look, too. Sort of a tiny shawl collar.

Spent some time with Tadashi and Shogo of Lightning Magazine at my house yesterday and Shogo had the most KILLER chore coat with brown leather trim. Shoulda asked him what and where.

Not heard of this brand before, but this could be a bit of a bargain for someone.

Took the plunge on a brown duck chore coat from Pointer Brand - not expecting to be blown away but hoping for a solid garment.

Here's my hickory striped chore jacket by pointer. I had the collar lined &shortened, with navy medium corduroy.

Shortened the difference

I also shortened the collar on my denim chore jacket, debating on lining the collar with corduroy or some type of leather.

I think they tend to run big. everyone I know with one has a small or extra small.

Mine came today and I love it. I'd say they run true. I wouldn't suggest sizing down in these.

got a pointer the other day...I went with a medium, should I have gotten a large? I feel good in it right now but 'm wondering about the shrinkage...

Sorry to ask do, pointers run big or small?

bought mine over a year ago and i thought they were pretty big at first, but after a couple washes it shrank a bit so i'd say go true to size.

other than that the sleeves are ridic. long for whatever reason so i always have to roll up the cuffs

I've got a hickory stripe pointer in size Medium that I would let go for around half price. Shoot me a PM if interested. As Robbie says, I would probably need an XS now.

^Ha! I was going to place a bid, but decided against it as there are just too many things I want...gotta prioritize my wants or I'll just have too many things in my closet that won't get any attention. Great price!!

So who was it? (Chant) Jerk, Jerk, Jerk, Jerk... :)

Hi guys. I've got this K&TH chore coat that I'm trying to move. Size 42. I need money pretty bad and for the next 24 hours only I'll let it go for $100. Essentially unworn condition. Maybe 3 wears.
