EARLYMADE Oficina Jacket — BLACK
Based on the workwear tradition, the straight-cut work jacket has gone from a practical garment worn by the working class to an everyday item for city-dwellers, as a solid alternative made to last a lifetime.
The original worker's jacket – or le bleu de travail – dates back to the 18th century in France, albeit more similar to an overshirt than a coat, it was designed to be worn by labourers in fields and farms. Originally made from combed cotton or wool to protect the labourers from the elements and withstand the wear and tear of manual labor, it was crafted for ease of movement when it came to physical tasks. Traditionally cut with a boxy fit to allow its wearers ease of movement while operating machinery, it came always with 3 or more exterior patch pockets for storing tools and the like.
— Corozo buttons selected in colours to compliment fabric colour
— Two patch pockets and a smaller internal patch pocket at front lower body, all with chamfered bottom corners
— One internal patch pocket at upper body, chamfered bottom corners, with visible stitching from the outside
— Upper back body panel lined in poplin
— Brand tag hand stitched on the inside below collar with corner lines visible from the outside.
— Hanging loop at collar from same fabric
— Garment dyed, giving depth and character of colour. The resulting natural
variations are intended. No two garments will look the same.
