Chore Coat

I made this chore coat/barn coat about a year ago for a friend in Tennessee. It's one of the first things I made though I just got these images this morning. Since he farms, homebrews, makes sauerkraut, and/or does odd jobs for a living it seemed like a chore coat would actually be a functional item for the guy.

It looks like the sleeves may be a little short

But he said it helps keep his other clothes clean when he goes and gets firewood and stuff.

  1. the arms are a very little bit short, but it really works out better than the alternative because the sleeves don't bunch up when you use the coat pockets for your hands, which i do a fair amount. it also doesn't cause your elbow to catch at any part of the range of motion, which is great for chopping wood/getting into brush.

    thanks again for the jacket, and sorry about my modeling ambivalence!
