For their very first off the peg piece, Bleu de Chauffe is paying tribute to its origins. The eponymous bleu de chauffe, icon of the workwear wardrobe, restyled in a modern version that still stays true to the original.
With the versatile and timeless Germinal jacket, we have given a touch of elegance and charm to this piece taken from the early 20th century worker’s wardrobe. It is peppered with workwear details coupled with contemporary design: more seductive lines, a suit-style shirt collar, and subtle patch pockets. A combination of eras which plays with style, between formal and casual.
MATERIALS AT CENTER STAGE
The Germinal jacket is made from an exceptionally resistant coated cotton fabric that is still incredibly soft and comfortable, also known as moleskin. Certified organic and of 100% French origin, this close-weave fabric is super smooth to the touch. A uniquely sturdy and soft material, for fashion that stands the test of time.
Button placket: five ergonomic buttons making it quick and easy to put on.
Sleeves buttoned at the wrist: easy to roll up if you have work to do, or just for the look!
Manufacturing: 100% French, just like the genuine work overalls of that era.
An essential workwear item, an appeal to simple, effortless living. Wear it with a tie or over your favorite t-shirt.
MADE IN FRANCE
The cotton moleskin fabric is woven in France in the Vosges region, the buttons come from an historic French factory, and your jacket is manufactured in France.
Thanks to 100% French manufacturing, at Bleu de Chauffe we keep our mileage – and our environmental impact – to a minimum, for a more sustainable, responsible form of production.
