Best of 2022: Foreman Coat
Inspired by traditional workwear of the early fifties, the practical and hardwearing Foreman is an unlined utilitarian jacket made to take charge. It features a boxy cut, 2 piece sleeves, a neat square collar, 2 hip pockets and one breast pocket. Can be optionally top-stitched in contrasting thread. The jacket was cut and designed for men, but the boxy shape fits most bodies, regardless of gender.

Fabric: Navy 14 Wale Corduroy (extra fabric included to account for nap)
Corduroy is such a common workwear fabric that it was almost required to use it in this box. We chose a medium wale, somewhere between the wide grooves of 70s style cord and the velvety smoothness of a pincord, so it has good texture without behind too distinct. Combined with a classic navy color, this fabric is destined to become a new family heirloom in your closet. An amazing choice!
Also in this box: Matching thread, topstitching thread, jean tack buttons, and a sewing machine needle
