Each well-worn jacket in this series has been renewed to extend its life.
French Workwear has become a ubiquitous term over the years to include any workwear for factory workers dyed the famed indigo blue, a practice which began in the late 1800s. We collected a selection of this workwear, including pieces originally manufactured in France, Germany, or other European countries in the 1960s and 1970s.
We’ve repaired and trimmed each piece utilizing antique Japanese boro fabrics to reimagine each pant into a one-of-a-kind piece. Since each jacket dictated its transformation based on repair needs, no two pieces are the same.
European Workwear Jacket 08/15 features hole repairs and pocket, cuff, and placket hem reinforcements with boro fabrics. An elbow patch has also been added on the left arm. This piece has faded from its original indigo color to violet. Complete the suit with one of our European Workwear Pants to wear to your next board meeting.
