Chore jacket made in Nudie Jeans own hickory stripe denim. The overall fit is generous like every good worker's jacket should be. This one features big patch-on pockets and a nifty chest pocket.
The hickory stripe is one of the iconic American workwear fabrics — if not the most. It was favored by railroad workers and painters as the stripes would obscure stains. The catchy but odd name is believed to refer to the fabric's hard-wearing properties; because it is "tough as hickory." While it is indeed tough, it is compared to denim that's flatter and lighter in weight due to the thinner yarn and flatter 2/1 construction. Therefore, it's perfect for workwear where comfort is important.
