Vetra Work Jacket Hydrone Twill
A classic jacket in a classic Vetra color, this is a bold, stylish piece perfect for the workshop, street, when hard at work or simply at play. Made from 100% washed cotton with a tough twill stitch, it’s a nod to Vetra’s roots in 20th Century European industry and also a step forward as they continue to blur the lines between workwear and fashion. Having constructed uniforms for the French army during WWII and then fleeing to Western France amid refusal to work for the Nazis, the Bereens Family behind Vetra has staying power, class, an ethic and strength that is echoed in all their shirts, coats, and pants. This work jacket is no exception - a slim fit, practical pockets, and a short cut for mobility.
It’s another illustration of Vetra’s pursuit of purposeful, stylish gear that blurs the line between workwear and fashion - a unique, singular take on the classic chore coat. Vetra continues to make strong-stitched and comfortable clothes that don’t quit. Launched in 1927, Edouard Bereens combined the first letters of vetements de travail - work clothes - to find “Vetra.” They’re still work clothes, but with such style, that phrase sounds way too modest.
