The Design: The Chore Coat is a classic boxy cut, patterned after a vintage chore coat. With this edition, we have added a chest pocket and shortened the length to mimic a french work-shirt silhouette. The jacket design also includes easy brass snap button closures, a small pointed collar, two large patch pockets and a relaxed tapered sleeve.
The Textile: This quilt was created in the depression era using men's suiting scraps. The history of these quilts is quite interesting because the pieces for these quilts were collected usually at a tailor shop where the suits were being created, and then sewn together using the leftover pieces from the clothing or the leftover sample squares from the factories. This specific blanket uses a hand-tied quilting method with yellow utility thread. The quilt is thin but would be incredibly warm. The back fabric is larger pieces of wool and gaberdine.
We make each jacket using repurposed vintage quilts that we source from textile waste centers across Texas. Quilts are updated as often as we find suitable pieces to be transformed. Each piece of clothing we make uses vintage material, so there may be “imperfections” in the form of mended areas, patches & distressing.
How it works: Choose a quilt from our collection and select your size. The specific measurements of each size are located in our size chart above. If you wish to have your piece tailored beyond our given design, (ex: sleeve length, jacket length, or other special requests) please contact us via email. Howdy@psychicoutlaw.com
