There’s something coolly insouciant about the French way of dressing. All baggy Breton stripes and pleated trousers, it’s a nation of utilitarian fashion and incidental style. And this effortless elegance is woven into one Gallic garment more than any other; the humble chore jacket.
A French workwear classic, the bleu de travail is a touchstone of the modern man’s wardrobe. It can be dressed up, dressed down, messed around and will still exude calm sophistication. And Sir Plus, despite being a thoroughly British brand, offers an ideal take on the French staple.
With a comfortable fit, three patch pockets on the front and a further three inside, this cotton twill jacket walks the line between fashion and function — and proves the perfect mid-layer for autumnal dressing. It features a neat collar, Corozo buttons and all the insouciant je ne sais quoi you can shake a baguette at…
Gentleman’s Journal says:
“The definition of cool smart casual, every single garment offered by Sir Plus is destined to become an investment piece. Not to mention that its core collection is the new smart casual uniform for all young men-about-town. You can spot a Sir Plus man at 50 paces — and that’s no bad thing.”
And, what’s more, you can buy it on the Gentleman’s Journal eStore now. Et voilà!
