As you know, we have a slight obsession with workwear, in general, but more specifically with utilitarian chore jackets. A thing of the past, they were once only worn by the artsy kind –late Bill Cunningham was illustrious for his bright royal blue jacket- they’ve been popping out left and right over the last five years. There are a number of independent brands known for there workwear jackets across Europe -Dobson Clothing in the UK, Bleu de Chauffe in France- and we’ve just discovered a newer one, based in Sweden, that we’re really fond of, A Day’s March.
The label’s name comes from an old military term, which is fitting as the designers’ seek inspiration in classic American and Italian menswear but also military and functional apparel. The brand offers a full range of well made clean-cut basics and staples which you should definitely check out.
The overshirts and jackets however really caught our eyes. Engineered to stand the test of time, they’re made in Portugal from sturdy herringbone twill cotton. Our favorite model is the Oyster version -the second one below- as its color, a very light beige, is easy to pair, either with jeans and a tee shirt or with a dressier dress shirt and a tie.
