Original 1950s French Blue Chore Jacket 'Alsthom Savo Sienne'

Original 1950s French Blue Chore Jacket 'Alsthom Savo Sienne'

Code: 51519


An original French Chore Jacket in blue and dating from the 1950s. 

This type of jacket is synonymous with French artisans, workers and labourers of the mid-century period and is arguably the most iconic jacket ever produced in France. 

This example dates from approximately the 1950s. The buttons and collar shape are clear indicators of this. The breast pocket features a small label which reads 'Alsthom Savo Sienne' which is a nice period addition. 

When laid flat the jacket measures - 

Chest - 22 1/2”
Inside arm - 19 3/4”
Outside arm - 24”
Length - 26 1/2”
Shoulders - 19”

The condition of the jacket is reasonable considering it is a vintage work piece. It has some flaws and defects including wear to the cuffs as pictured. There is also a large stain to the front which is again detailed in the pictures. 

A good original example with lots of character, fading and staining - just how they should be!
