More info

N°2 : ‘bleu de chauffe’ style work jacket in natural blue moleskin / late 1930s – 1940 / new old stock (=deadstock)

 

In France, the work jacket or 'bleu de chauffe' is worn by workers in almost all the manual trades: mechanics, plumbers, masons and peasants.

 

Product features:

This 'bleu de chauffe' is in natural blue moleskin, made by French manufacturer l'Athlète. Moleskin is a very sturdy cotton fabric woven in a particular way to produce a garment which is lustrous, silky, and soft to the touch. It takes its indigo blue from denim, its American cousin.

This 'bleu de chauffe' has 3 outside pockets and one inside pocket.

It is fitted out with black lacquered buttons (five buttons on the front, two on the sleeves).

 

à Interesting fact

Not every bleu de chauffe is blue!

Railway workers and mechanics wore a black bleu de chauffe, which didn't show the dirt as much. People in less dirty jobs (masons, wine-makers) preferred the blue bleu de chauffe.

The only workers who didn't have this blue workwear were house painters: they wore white!
