Chore coats

Recommended Posts

is that deadstock?

It's got very little wear but it's been worn/washed enough to wear off the size info on the tag.

How's the pointer duck coat compared to a carhartt one? $20 is really tempting.

The deadstock hickory stripe fabric is SO much nicer than the current stuff. My deadstock hickory pointer was my go to jacket all fall and winter.

Up early with nothin' going on, so I flipped on the TV and spotted Larry wearing a pretty sweet chore coat.......... he was actually doing chores : )

Bonus shot of my pointer...I'm a med. and ordered a small..fits great.

Is that one of the newer ones with the heavier weight denim?

it isn't the heavier weight which I don't mind. I can wear it spring/fall with a sweater.

I recently got this Wrangler Blue Bell chore coat and I was thinking about removing the liner. What do you guys think, should I do it?

no.

don't damage the integrity of the coat. if you want an unlined chore coat BUY an unlined chore coat IMO.

Edit- also, can you post some close ups of the buttons and any of the Blue Bell ephemera on the coat plz.

Keep the liner. I used to have an unlined version of that coat, and they are really easy to find on ebay..

^^ That Big Mac is rad, really like the chest pockets, must spread.

^shit dude nice coat, if you ever decide you no longer want that coat drop me a line, or you'd prefer an unlined chore coat of somekind we could make a deal I'm sure. The blanket lining looks like it could punch a Nebraska winter square in the jaw. srsly, I dig the heck out of it, again must spread.

Also, after seeing yours I think I may have sold a jacket I didn't know was Wrangler Blue Bell on my etsy shop .

The zipper lead me to believe this was too late to be Wrangler Blue Bell :(

live and learn i guess

Ah hah, thanks for posting these close up details. I now know what my coat is. Mine has no labels but I knew it was similar to that first picture you posted and then the detail shot of the button front/back confirmed it, I have a Wrangler Blue Bell. :)

The duck version of that Carhartt was nice but to be honest that denim one was not as good in person. I can't put my finger on why, just felt 'off' to me.

The fabric of both the duck and the denim carhartt "heritage" coats was really weak unfortunatly. The duck is thin and flimsy compared to the reg US line duck, I dont understand why they didnt use that fabric. Great design though.

Nice lookin jacket. I am not too into blanket lined jackets or corduroy collars. I think if I did real manual labor in the cold, those things would be important though.

I like the blanket once it's broken a little. A lot of times on that older stuff it's wool so unless you're layered it's itchy.

There's probably $600 worth of those new ties from the hillside alone in that coat (I kid).

Awesome, thanks for the heads up. I'm about to grab one but I can't find any info on sizing? Anyone have any help? I was thinking to with a Small since I'm assuming these are cut for working and thus a little looser.
