Chore Coat

The chore coat has been with us for over a century and worn mostly by factory workers, prisoners, uniformed attendants, mechanics, milkmen, the list goes on and on. Not exactly a fashion staple for menswear, it has become a favorite among vintage revivalists.

The ILA stands for the International Longshoremen’s Association Union, which are a group of maritime worker unions around North America. While in Japan, it might not mean anything, this jacket does get quite a few looks around the U.S.

I don’t think they’ve ever made a chore coat quite this luxurious.

Also I’m not sure BUCO ever had a garage that fixed cars. But its a nice jacket. Its constructed of a more typical cotton twill, but more heavyweight than vintage pieces.
