Vintage Bright Blue French Worker Sanforized Cotton Twill Chore Jacket M / L

£65.00 GBP

  • As its name suggests, the blue worker jacket was originally designed as a utilitarian garment, first worn by railway labourers and engineers in France in the late 1800s. The French name - bleu de travail - literally translates to 'blue work'; this simple functional jacket typically with patch pockets looks great on its own or for layering.


    This is a 'Sanforized' jacket which is a sign of quality. In sanforization, the fabric is stretched, fixed and shrunk in length at the mill in order to reduce the amount of shrinkage that can occur after the first wash. Made in France.


    Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout. Freshly laundered and ready for its new owner.


    All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.


    COLOUR: Bright Blue


    SIZE: The internal label has size 5 FR and XL UK but this fits more like a boxy M / L (UK Sizing) with a 50in full external chest and the overall fit/ short arm length - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

    DETAILS:

    - Button front fastening

    - 2 front lower patch pockets 

    - 1 upper chest patch pocket

    HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary from brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.


    EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up (if applicable) on a flat surface:


    A - CHEST - armpit to armpit (double for full chest): 25in (63.5cm)

    B - SLEEVE - shoulder seam to cuff end: 22.5in (57cm)   

    C - SHOULDER - distance between shoulder seams straight across at the back: 21in (53cm)

    D - LENGTH - at the centre back from the base of the collar to the hem: 29in (73.5cm)
