5 Days, 5 Ways: Chore Coat
not a chore to wear
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you don’t sometimes need a jacket. A blue collar staple of the 50’s, the chore coat’s utilitarian style can easily be incorporated into any pre-existing aesthetic you may be currently exploring. It’s essentially a stiff structured shirt made of canvas or denim with some big ol’ pockets, so it’s just heavy enough to throw over any of your summertime-fun looks.
