A new direction for our best-selling chore jacket...
19th century France was the birthplace of the original ‘bleu de travai’ (blue work) chore jackets, simple garments made from hard-wearing cotton. They made the perfect workers' jacket with two large pockets to store tools, a loose fit, and a shorter length than a standard jacket to stop it from getting caught in machinery.
By the 1920s the chore jacket had made its way over to America which saw the introduction of denim, making this legendary jacket even more hard-wearing.
When we started to develop a HARD.WEAR version of our iconic Carver jacket, we looked to find a fabric that would offer durability and a maximum range of movement – our search led us to a rich, mid-weight denim.
The 13oz denim is supplied by ISKO, one of the world’s leading responsible denim manufacturers. We have added a slight stretch to give the jacket movement with minimal restrictions - often found with traditional workwear.
The Carver has been with &SONS since the company was founded so we have kept the original design patterns and utilitarian features such as a pencil pocket and rounded collar.

The antibacterial finish is gently administered during the finishing stage of the process using a unique chemical formula that is applied to the fabric.
