ACHTUNG ! VETRA SIZING FOR GERMANY
Vétra: Authentic French Workwear Manufacturer Since 1927.
Since 1927, Vétra has been manufacturing all its iconic garments in its own French factory, benefiting from its unique savoir-faire.
This (organic) twill chore jacket is inspired by the original Bleu de Travail made by Vétra since its inception for French workers. This style is 5cm shorter than the original style #4, adding a modern touch to the design.
Twill fabric emerged as the preferred choice over moleskin, becoming an iconic fabric in French workwear, while drills were favored by Anglo-Saxon counterparts. This fabric is woven with two-ply warp yarns, providing enhanced durability.
The color palette stays true to authenticity: black and Bugatti blue were the predominant colors until the 1950s, later replaced by hydrone and navy blues. Additionally, the blueish grey, known as postman blue, was specifically designated for postmen. Today, Vétra offers an exclusive and extensive range of colors, all 100% dyed in France, including bottle, pineapple, quince, and waid.
Discover Vétra's collection of authentic French workwear, meticulously crafted with decades of expertise. Choose this (organic) twill chore jacket, inspired by the iconic Bleu de Travail, for a touch of modern style and embrace the rich heritage of French workwear.
