E17 Double Indigo 14.5oz Japanese Mens Chore Jacket
The E17 double indigo chore jacket is a combination of tailoring and workwear. It’s something you can wear everyday, through all of the seasons, with a characterful slubby cloth and double-dipped indigo dye that fades naturally with wear.
Trim and fitted cut. We suggest trying one size larger than your normal size. Please refer to our size chart to choose the correct size.
Tailored finish makes it easy to dress up
Straight body allows for casual wear, with t-shirt, shirt or jumper underneath
Longer length sleeves fit most arm lengths, and even suit a little roll
Short boxy block, inspired by traditional French chore jackets
The double indigo looks great with all jeans, especially when it’s worn lighter over time
Bear in mind your manoeuvrability if you want to wear a jumper underneath

Fabric and Trims
14.5oz double indigo denim woven by Japanese mill Kawagoshimasa
The chore jacket has been rinsed once to lessen the high amount of indigo in the fabric (that doesn’t penetrate the yarns). This means it will not shrink when washed.
Characterful slightly slubby fabric and unique dyeing process may show small variations in colour and fabric
Sanforized fabric (pre-shrunk)
BLA-branded “Dual face” copper-coloured nickel buttons and rivets produced by YKK
Navy dual duty thread by Coats (polyester core with cotton outer)
Recycled denim swing tags are pressed by our neighbour Baddeley Brothers (compost them)
The swing tag twine is hemp, so can be composted or reused
Mitred pockets and pointed collar inspired by French chore coats
Hidden placket conceals the jacket buttons for a smooth front
Three exterior pockets for functionality: two hand and one chest – pockets all have internal reinforcement and rivets
The large interior pockets has two openings: one with button closure and one for a pencil
Jacket hanger loop made in the same high quality fabric
Tailoring-style angled shoulder seam
Felled seams, which means no overlock stitching
Underarm is bound with polycotton bias binding – stronger and cleaner than overlocking
Cold wash only, or the denim will shrink by 5%
Wash inside out with mild detergent or none at all
They are Sanforized so will shrink in the length up to 1″, but shouldn’t shrink in the width
Raw denim will give up to a 1 1/2″ in the waistband, so the fit should be snug (but not restrictive) to compensate
