A Bolt of Blue amongst the crowd…

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.

"Best worker jacket I’ve ever owned"

INTRODUCING

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.

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.

ORIGINS

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. Often made from hardy cotton, the jacket was built to last and withstand the tough demand of physical jobs, with tears and holes simply patched up with whatever they could lay their hands on. It had a boxed fit and shorter crop so it could be worn with overalls and other workwear attire.
