Vétra: French Workwear Garments Crafted with Unique Expertise Since 1927.
Vétra has been manufacturing all its garments in its own French factory since 1927, allowing them to benefit from a distinctive savoir-faire.
This twill chore jacket, now made with organic materials, has been Vétra's flagship garment since 1927, famously known as the "Bleu de travail" or the French Dungaree Jacket.
The colors of the jacket are authentic as well. Bugatti blue and black, easy to produce and clean, were the primary colors until the 1950s when they were replaced by hydrone and navy. The blueish grey, also known as postman blue, was the distinctive color for postmen.
The jacket was an integral part of the factory worker's triptych outfit, along with fatigue pants and coveralls.
This iconic jacket served as an inspiration for CLOSED in their workwear collaboration with J-M Girbaud and Vétra.

The historic work jacket
The #4 style jacket is the historical form of the authentic French work jacket. Being 5cm longer than the #5 jacket, the #4 has preserved its historical characteristics such as its black buttons, reinforced pockets with bar tacks, and its highly durable fabric in its century-old colors.
