&SONS Blue Bolt Chore Jacket – £140

The Blue Bolt Chore Jacket (£140) is &SONS homage to the classic French Blue Work jacket and one of our favourite pieces of outerwear from the UK clothing brand here at Coolector HQ. the Blue Bolt is a simple box cut Cotton jacket that &SONS have put through numerous washes to produce an authentic ‘worn in’ fade and patina to the indigo dyed Cotton Twill with 2% Elastine. Unlike the stiff hard cut French work jackets of the 1800’s – the Blue Bolt is a much softer, tactile cloth that is comfortable to wear, with freedom of movement while being hard wearing enough for work. It has some great features which will make it your go-to jacket for winter which includes large laid-on fabric pockets to front of jacket and straight open pockets. A great looking piece of outerwear that is positively dripping in old school cool. (£140)

Limited to just 20 pieces, the &SONS Japanese Shibori Scarf (£50) will add a touch of old school cool and panache to your outfit choices this winter. Crafted from 100% cotton and indigo tye dyed using the ancient Japanese technique of ‘Shibori’. Shibori is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of embellishing textiles by shaping cloth and securing it before dyeing. Every scarf is one of a kind due to the tie dye technique used to create each &SONS scarf to make it as individual as you. Looks great knotted with their whole range of layers, especially the ELDER shirt and LINCOLN waistcoat. (£50)
