If you ask us here at The Coolector, a quality denim jacket should be a mainstay of any man’s wardrobe rotation and, if you’re after the best of the best, you’ll be hard pressed to find anything more stylistic and well made than the &SONS Black Denim Carver Jacket. Billed as new direction for the brand’s best selling Chore Jacket, this latest offering has definitely caught our eye here at The Coolector and for any man seeking their next essential piece of outerwear, look no further.
The &SONS Black Denim Carver Jacket has a price tag of £175 which, truth be told, is nothing short of miraculous given how much care and attention has gone into the crafting of this jacket. Not to mention the high calibre of the materials used throughout. The quality of this jacket is tangible to say the least and when you pull it on for the first time, it will rapidly become your go-to whatever the occasion.
19th century France was the birthplace of the original ‘bleu de travai’ (blue work) chore jackets which served as the inspiration for much of &SONS outerwear. These were simple garments crafted from hard-wearing cotton. They made the perfect workers jacket with two large pockets to store tools, a loose fit, and a shorter length than a standard jacket to stop it from getting caught in machinery.
When &SONS began developing a HARD.WEAR version of their iconic Carver jacket, they were on the hunt for a fabric that would offer durability and an unparalleled range of movement – and their search led us to a rich, mid-weight denim. With this, the &SONS Black Denim Carver Jacket (£175) was born and it is unquestionably one of our favourite pieces of apparel from the UK lifestyle brand to date.
The 13oz denim used for the Black Denim Carver Jacket is supplied by ISKO, who are one of the world’s leading responsible denim manufacturers so this is a piece of outerwear that you can feel good about wearing. &SONS have added a slight stretch to give the jacket an impressive array of movement with minimal restrictions – a problem that is often found with traditional workwear.
Modern Day Classic
The Carver has been with &SONS since the company was founded so it’s easy to see why they have kept the original design patterns and utilitarian features such as a pencil pocket and rounded collar because they are all part and parcel of what makes the jacket so great in the first place. The Black Denim Carver Jacket has an array of excellent features which include large laid-on fabric pockets to the front of the jacket and eye-catching elbow patches.
Priced at £175, which is entirely reasonable for outerwear of this calibre, the Black Denim Carver Jacket is already positively flying off &SONS digital shelves so you’ll need to move quickly if you want to bag one for yourself. A denim jacket is a style staple and adding one of this out and out quality to your 2021 wardrobe rotation is an absolute no-brainer in our opinion here at Coolector HQ. What are you waiting for?
