Our first women's jacket. Handmade in our own Southwold workshop.

A classic chore jacket, inspired by French 'laboureur' styles.

  • Choose from Rich Blue, Olive, Sand, and French Navy (a blue so deep it's almost black)

  • Handmade to order in our own Southwold workshop

  • Delivery 7-14 days

  • Covered by our Lifetime Visible Repair Guarantee

The Blackshore Women's Chore Jacket is handmade in our own Lowestoft workshop in a light-to-midweight navy cotton drill (265gm) from 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 Women's 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.

Buttoned, pleated cuffs.

Shown in Olive in our photographs.

SIZING GUIDE

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

We provide a nominal women's UK size in our chart 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 generously cut, and has a boxy, unfitted, shape: 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.

Love it!

Worn it loads since I got it and just managed to stop my daughter from pinching it!
Looking forward to getting lots of use out of it.

Great to buy local!
