Original 1930s French Belt Back Workwear Chore Jacket 'Le Mont Rouge'

Code: 54666


A fantastic original French chore jacket made in blue sanforised cotton and featuring a belted back. 

Blue work jackets are synonymous with French artisans, workers and labourers of the mid-century period and is arguably the most iconic jackets ever produced in France. This example is a rare pre World War Two made jacket and is particularly special as it features a belted back. It is made from a blue coloured cotton and features a single breasted front which fastens with three wooden buttons. Three patch pockets are located to the front of the jacket and there is also a single interior pocket. The original label is found here and bears the maker's name of 'Le Mont-Rouge' in typical period graphics.

The jacket is a smaller size which will suit a 36" chest well. When laid flat it measures - 

Chest - 21"
Inside arm - 18 11/2"
Outside arm - 22 1/2"
Shoulders - 18"
Length - 27"

The jacket is in good condition with some signs of wear and age. There are no serious flaws or damage and all of the original wooden buttons are even still present. There is some light fading  but on the whole, the jacket is very wearable. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small flaws commensurate with age.  

A really great early French jacket with some fantastic details.
