About this item
An original French Chore Jacket in blue and dating from the 1950s.
This type of jacket is synonymous with French artisans, workers and labourers of the mid-century period and is arguably the most iconic jacket ever produced in France.
This example dates from approximately the 1950s, the buttons and collar shape are clear indicators of this. It is made from the usual snaforised cotton used in France during this period due to it's hard wearing nature.
The jacket is a smaller size and when laid flat the jacket measures -
Chest - 21”
Inside arm - 19 1/2”
Outside arm - 23 3/4”
Length - 27 1/2”
Shoulders - 17”
The condition of the jacket is reasonable considering it is a vintage work piece. It has some flaws and defects including wear to the cuffs as pictured. Please bear in mind that this a vintage work piece and will therefore have small issues consummate with its age.
A good original example with lots of character, fading and staining - just how they should be!
