Blue European Workwear jacket


This German work jacket has some very interesting detailing. When you first put it on, you’ll notice the buttons. They’re on the left side of the jacket instead of the right. They button through one set of buttonholes on the right placket, then through a second set, on a fly on the right side, bringing them back to where they belong, and entirely sealing the front of the jacket up from gusts of wind and dust. The jacket is caped, with the cape forming the pocket flaps of the breast pocket. The lining of the cape is rubberized. Underneath, in the front and back, are a set of pass through slits, possibly for a harness of some kind. The collar has a button throat latch underneath. The cuffs are an unusual design, again allowing for a tight seal with no gaps. It has elbow reinforcements, an internal waist adjuster drawstring, and interior cargo pockets.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length: 27″
