Monday's Detail - Chore Jacket



Wearing - Vintage chore jacket, Gap check shirt, Levi's 511s, Superga trainers, Uniqlo socks, green & white bandana

I was up at the crack of dawn on Monday, ready for a full day of helping Hollie with her exhibition space for her final campaign at uni. The day was filled with sandwiches (for every meal), holding my breath while measuring with the spirit level, putting up shelves and plenty of creative decisions. There was an extreme case of deja vu as it was this time last year I was putting up my final exhibition, it brought back some found memories. 

Above it what I wore for the day, I picked up this vintage french work jacket in a second-hand shop in Manchester last week. I've been after one of these for a while now and after many ill-fated attempts from ebay (I've never found one that fits, always massive arms or wide bodies), I've managed to snag one that fits almost perfect. It could do with being an inch or 2 longer but I can deal with that. It's got plenty of pockets for all my stuff and doesn't need any repairs. I've found a decent Summer jacket at last.

  4. I've seen quite a few of those vintage work jackets about eBay and keep thinking whether it would be worth picking one up for general wear and tear. Details look darn good.
