Vetra Women's Work Coat Marine Twill
With a long and classic cut for women, deep pockets to keep your hands warm or hold your stuff, and in a deep marine blue, this work coat can head for the sea or keep you bundled as you work away in your shop. Like all Vetra gear, it looks good outside the shop and is a purposeful, no-nonsense choice for any sort of work. 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. With a slim, efficient cut, this coat is no exception.
It’s another illustration of Vetra’s pursuit of purposeful, stylish gear that blurs the line between workwear and fashion. 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.
