Vintage Short Zip Fronted Workwear Jacket

Sorry - out of stock

These fantastic jackets represent the Holy Grail for us. It took a lot of negotiation with the grand children of a couple who closed their clothing shop/cafe in 1955. But we’ve managed to secure a very large collection of 1940s and ‘50s dead stock French workwear. This is a fantastic haul of the very finest workwear which has lain undisturbed on the shop’s shelves in Burgundy for 61 years. 

These zip front jackets are made in 100% thick, classic, blue (bleu) cotton. They almost certainly date from the 1940s or earlier. They have a robust zip (made in France), two front patch pockets, a really elegant collar and a gently elasticated hem at the back. They are cut fairly short. They were extremely dusty when we acquired them so we have washed them gently and dried them in the sun. A bona fide classic that you’re very unlikely to see elsewhere.
