Chore coats

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I was wondering if one of you knowledgeable people could tell me exactly how the watch chain buttonhole on some of these jackets is supposed to be used. My rogue territory jacket has one, and I was curious about how to use it.

Lets bump this one up.

 

I have been looking at snaggin a chore coat for this fall/winter. I am looking for something duck/regular denim (not wabash or hickory) or canvas, with or without blanket lining. I saw flash's Evisu one the other day that really got me thinking. My question is, what is out there?

 

Warehouse?

Fullcount?

SDA?

 

Where do you find these?

There's also the Lee "First Smart Coat" line that are made out of japanese selvedge fabrics (also available non-selvedge for more cheap). I tried one of those on, they fit pretty modern (slim sleeves and overall slimness) and look more like a casual blazer than 1940s janitor. I guess you could just size up for layering and a more sack like fit.

 

I returned it because I tried a hickory variant and then realized that I don't have that many shirts in my wardrobe it would go with.

Check out what Naoki-san have in stock over at Pants shop avenue. I recall he has chore coats at least from SDA, Denime and Sugar Cane.

Looks like Ooe Yofukuten is planning to release something chore-coat-like shirt, might be worth waiting for.

wow that is gorgeous. another in the running. 

 

I am still trying to figure out what I like and dont like about whats out there. I think I want a straight denim coat that is lighter, in the 10 oz range that isnt too long. I saw this one on instagram also but I can only find it in wabash

Does anyone have any experience with Orslow chore coats? the 40s or 50s style? I havent hear much on this brand or its ageing.

I don't know about their chore coats. But their denim is really slubby and textured. 

It ages well.

So... wow... I am honestly blown away. I decided to go with the Orslow 40s chore coat (coverall). I had read some great things about their denim but really couldn't find much about them or much of their clothing. I REALLY wasn't prepared for how gorgeous this coat is.

The denim is a rich blue (darker than above) with an unbleached weft, very rough, hairy and irregular.

the details are beautiful, bartacked pockets, chainstitch runoff and aged laurel buttons.

and the puckering is already unreal. This is going to age so beautifully. I am seriously impressed. 

 

I don't know why there isn't more info about this brand around.

Yes, a beautiful coat. It's a shame I'm not into wearing chore coats or I would have picked this up when I saw it at Beams here in town. They have several orSlow items, all nice.

I found this post in another thread, thought I would x-post it over here.

 

Here's a 1940's chore jacket with a simple four button front with two front pockets and stand collar construction. The war time laurel wreath buttons are lightly rusted and have a cool patina. The ring spun denim has beautiful fades from years of wear and some interesting loom chatter.
