Our in-house made chore coats combine the best of details from a variety of original examples in our company archives. Patterned, cut and sewn by us from start to finish in Greensboro, NC using the finest USA-made materials you can find. Constructed from a rigid 12oz Cone White Oak 3/1 Denim we had a few yards of for the second in the series of releases. This fabric is unique, as it utilizes a two-color yarn construction similar to hickory stripe, but with a bleached and unbleached cotton, offering a visual effect of herringbone from afar, but will wear in beautifully and resemble the hand of a lighter linen cloth.
In this release of our classic chore pattern, we utilized 3 exterior patch pockets. Triple needle chainstitch felled back seam, shoulder, and cuff to waist, double needle lockstitch felled sleeve cap, with single needle lockstitch pockets, collars, cuffs, and placket. Lift The Dot vintage nickel-plated snap fastener placket and cuff closure. HH moniker label on chest pocket. Sewn with natural and optic white A&E perma core thread and finished with natural bartacks using Coats dual core thread.
Evan's favorite details are the subtle curves to the point collar, taken from a 1930's chore coat example, the double needle cuff facing, seen on a 1920's Lee locomotive jacket, all popularized elements from 1930's through 1960's in economy-line work clothing.
These have a roomy fit and a classic, timeless shape.
Our in-house made chore coats will be made one size run at a time, and will never be made from the exact same fabric.
Our sizing is based off of friends who served as test samples and were found to fit well. We may expand our size offering at a later time.
Built to wear in, not out.
