At long last, we now have restocked on all sizes of our chore coats. These are made here in Cincinnati by Sew Valley and are based on a traditional French design. They are nice enough to wear out to dinner, but tough enough to wear in a chilly shop.
When ordering, we recommend you go one size up from your usual. This will allow layering and permit some additional movement at the bench. I normally wear a large, but I have an XL chore coat that is like a second skin (just as soon as the thermometer allows it).
This chore coat is a limited-run item and is not always in stock. If you have been waiting for one, it would be best not to wait.

On a related note, any update, by chance, on the vest?

We are waiting on the material to come from the mill in the UK.
Absolutely one of the nicest pieces of clothing I owne. The Wall Street Journal published an article last week talking about how in style French work coats have become.
Any chance of the LAP zip up hoodie making a reappearance?
We definitely want one. The problem (as always) is finding one we like that isn’t crazy expensive. We’ve experimented with Champion and even Carhartt. Still looking.
Best coats I own. I have two. Super high quality.

If I were you, I’d only buy it if I wanted something that is incredible in form, fit, function, and fashion. Otherwise F off.
Repeating what others already said here, but I too truly love my chore coat. It’s never to warm, never to hot, and it can take a beating. And it makes me feel good.
Never too warm, never to hot. Yup, I was going to write just one of them. Thank you and good bye.
Really like my ‘bleu de travail’, especially because the other ones on the market — hard to find outside of La Douce France — contain to much manmade material to my linking & deviate from the classic look (eg too long). I am contemplating buying a second one as a daily wear, but the really steep import taxes (that add about 90 bucks to the list price) are holding me back a bit. BTW I am in the Netherlands and used a service in the US to handle the shipping.
There are certain mail forwarding services, that provide so called customs value modification, for a small fee. I’ve used that and saved a significant lump of money. Try parcl.com, for instance. #neversponsored 🙂
