The Cone Mills Chore Jacket is our most coveted piece in the shop. A labor of love and luck, this piece is truly one of a kind.
Cone Mills Corporation was the longest running denim manufacturer in United States. The White Oak Plant in Greensboro, North Carolina produced its last piece of denim in 2017 after 110 years of continuous production. American made selvedge denim stopped being manufactured when they closed their doors.
Our chore jacket is based on a classic workwear silhouette with Cone Mills 1976 selvage denim. The jacket features dual entry hand pockets, single chest pocket, and interior pocket for added security. Our small batch of jackets were proudly cut and sew in Texas with our partner, Bait Factory. Once these are gone, they are gone.
Our recommendation is to size down from your normal true to size fit. If you wear a large tee, you will probably prefer a medium jacket for snug fit that will only breakdown and get better with age.
