Handmade in our own workshop: a classic chore jacket, inspired by French 'laboureur' styles.

A lighter weight alternative to our Southwold Luxury Worker Jacket, our new classic, simply named 'The Chore Jacket', is handmade in our own Southwold workshop to the same superb standards.

  • Traditional Mid Blue cotton drill

  • Handmade to order in our Southwold workshop

  • Unisex style (if you would like buttons on left for women's style please add note to your order)

  • Choose from Mid-Navy, French Navy, Sand, or Olive
  • Delivery 14-21 days

  • Covered by our Lifetime Visible Repair Guarantee

The fabric is a light-to-midweight navy cotton drill (265gm) that is dyed and finished in Lancashire: hardwearing and protected by our lifetime repair guarantee.

The Corozo (nut) buttons are made for us in the Cotswolds by England's only traditional button manufacturer, on the last purpose-made button-making machines left in the UK!

The Chore is an unlined jacket, generously cut to layer over a sweater, or just a Tee, for all year round use.

Features one internal and three external pockets.

SIZING GUIDE

We've worked hard to make our sizing system as straightforward and accurate as possible.

We provide a nominal traditional 'chest size' but we urge you to go by 'flat width' sizes. It's easy to do...

We recommend that you take a favourite jacket that you know fits you, button it up and lay it flat on a table.

With a tape measure, carefully measure the width from side to side from armpit to armpit (where the sleeve joins the armhole). This is the Flat Width (see chart below), and it is the most important measurement.

If your favourite jacket has a flat width of say 57cm, then choose a Medium. If it's 59.5 then choose a large.

This jacket is designed to wear over a shirt or thin sweater. If you think you want to wear a thick jumper under your new jacket then consider going up a size.

Bear in mind that our cotton jackets can shrink a little in first washing (we recommend cold hand wash... and never more than 30 degrees).

All measurements are a guide only. These are handmade products and may have minor size variation. If you find you've ordered the wrong size, don't worry: return it to us unworn within 30 days and we will send an alternative size.

Great jacket, proper quality.

Firstly, this is a great quality garment that is really well made, the materials are first rate and will only get better with age. I have been looking for a quality Chore Jacket for a long time and this is definitely the best example I have found to date.

Service and delivery has also been excellent. The packaging is a nice touch and I love the ethos behind Blackshore.

Points to consider, do make sure you read the product guide and measure properly as per the instructions. I am a big guy and the xxl/50 came up smaller than expected so unfortunately I will need to return the jacket which is a real shame as its a great piece.

Great products, outstanding service

To me Blackshore's vision is traditional and modern at the same time and is something I am very interested in supporting.

The garments are very well made, fit well and the materials used are of great quality.

I must also comment on the personalised tags, handwritten notes and reaction to feedback which really made me feel like a valued customer and perhaps even a friend.
