HOW THE GARMENT FITS....

  • Athletic
  • Fitted
  • Regular
  • Relaxed

An essential piece to a gentleman’s attire.

It features cinch straps on the back to adjust to your desired fit.  We have added a &SONS Carpenter’s pencil holder in the chest pocket. Coupled with all of the historic hallmarks of a solid chore jacket, our Crafter is a unique take on the traditional look. Equally relaxed with our cotton twill mix but with the option to wear open and layered or buttoned up for a sharper look. The single lining and lightweight material make this the perfect 'all season’ layer. Our unique vintage fade finishes the jacket off perfectly and offers a ‘worn-in’ feel from day one. Indigo dye, by its nature is not very colour-fast. This is what helps to create the fades on your jeans after wear! We advise avoiding contact with lighter coloured clothes and upholstery when wearing raw denim as the colour can transfer. Should the colour transfer onto your lighter-coloured clothing it should wash out with your usual detergent.

INTRODUCING

The Crafter is a staple piece of the collection and was launched as our very first chore jacket.

In the latest iteration, we have further perfected the wash technique to give it an authentic 'lived in' look while introducing an opening to the back of the pockets to offer even more functionality. Our best-selling Crafter ‘CHORE’ Jacket is made from 80% heavy cotton twill, 17% poly, and 8% stretch for comfort and ease of movement. 

This is a highly practical workwear garment with a rounded collar, button detail cuffs, elbow patches, and a useful set of external and internal pockets.

ORIGINS

From workwear to formality, the shawl collared jacket is an essential piece to a gentleman’s attire.

Few jackets are as tough, versatile, and functional as the traditional chore. This faithful Chore ticks every workwear box and has done since the 19th Century when used by French artisans and US railroad workers to provide comfort, protection, and functionality. The Shawl collar is seen across many garments in a Pioneers wardrobe, from cardigans to blazers and even waistcoats. The design was originally adopted by Victorians as they began to look at less-formal attire for both around the home and outside. As the gentleman retired for a smoke they would don a less formal jacket to prevent the smell from making its way onto their evening wear. The relaxed collar, with a much deeper cut V still gave the gentry a sophisticated look but with a more relaxed feel. The collar is simply an extended lapel which made sewing easier and less work for tailors, this only added to its popularity.

Style Tip: Layering couldn’t be simpler with our Crafter chore. The single lined jacket is made of a unique mix which allows it to remain rugged and hardwearing but with a slight stretch. The vintage fade further adds to the style and pairs well with any of our shirts and of course our newly released Boardwalk Peacoat. Combine it with our YARD shirt for the perfect layered style.
