Gertrude Chore Jacket in Sand


Meet the Gertrude Chore Jacket.

This utilitarian chore jacket is one of our favorites. This coat is inspired by our founder's grandmother, Norma Gertrude, and as the name suggests, created for women who work hard and make things happen. Subtle details make this a classic wardrobe staple to wear for years to come.  Front lined patch pockets compliment an oversized folded collar detail and stitched fabric panels, making this 70s inspired jacket a modern piece. 

Our clothes are made-to-order from deadstock fabric, which means there is only a limited amount we make in each color, making sure it’s as unique as you. Pick your size and you'll receive your piece in 3 weeks.

This jacket is unlined to make it easier to layer over flannels and sweaters.

Made from a sturdy, yet soft cotton canvas.

Care Directions: Hand wash and hang dry or take to a professional green dry/wet cleaner. 

Size Guide


You save money by allowing us to only make the sizes and styles you actually want. This cuts down on wasted fabric and materials, letting us reduce prices. Just pick and your hand-made clothing arrives on your doorstep in 3 weeks.
