Our homage to the classic French Blue Work jacket - the BLUE BOLT is a simple box cut cotton jacket that we’ve put through numerous washes to produce an authentic ‘worn in’ fade and patina to the indigo-dyed cotton twill.
Few jackets are as tough, versatile and useful as the traditional French worker jacket. This faithful Chore ticks every workwear box and has done since the 19th Century when used by French artisans and US railroad workers to provide comfort, protection and functionality. Unlike the stiff hard cut French work jackets of the 1800’s - The BLUE BOLT is a much softer, tactile cloth that is comfortable to wear, with freedom of movement while being hard-wearing enough for work.
We’ve retained the traditional box-cut, shorter arms and signature four pocket detailing but with a cotton twill blend, which gives the jacket a softer, less restrictive feel.
