Chore Coat1791 Supply
A raw Bedford Corduroy Denim Chore Coat from 1791 Supply Co.
The Chore Coat first appeared in America around the turn of the 20th century, and became more popularized in the 20's and 30's. It was typically worn by blue collar laborers, workers, and farmers. The Chore Coat was generally made from durable fabric like denim or heavy canvas in order to keep workers warm and to serve as protection when working in mines, on the railroad, or really any other outdoor work.
The standard chore coat design was usually created with over-sized chest pockets, two hip pockets and an over-sized collar that would often be flipped up to protect the workers from sunburn. Additionally, the boxy and loose fit was ideal for layering in the colder months. The Chore Coat was born for utility and versatility.
This will shrink if you wash it, so we generally advise to hand wash and hand dry when necessary.
