Trend report: The other work wear

Toogood work wear chore jacket for women

Spring has sprung! We had our first ‘heat wave’ this weekend (17 degrees), which got me thinking about my chore jacket. In a normal spring week, maybe I’d think about wearing this with white Levi’s, polished Derby’s and a thin merino knit for weekend brunch, but I’ll have to park that thought for now. But I can still consider it for the daily walk, maybe with a matching bandana-fashioned-as-a-Corona-mask. I knew those Hermès scarves would come in handy

Toogood, purveyors of superior ’work wear’ garms have fully embraced ’bleu de travail’ aka ‘workers blue’, saturating their Metalworker jacket, Photographer Jacket and Bricklayer trousers in deepest cobalt blue. This lived-in ‘gets better with age’ look is perfect for summer garden pottering while on lockdown, especially teamed with white drill pants or wide leg khakis (these get my vote).
