Always a Pleasure: A Guide to our Chore Jackets

The chore jacket has been the preserve of the hard-working for over two centuries, and while nowadays the most likely points to see any serious wear are the elbows from leaning on the bar, the chore jacket has endured and transformed from its utilitarian past as workwear to a staple icon of menswear.

Alongside our range of relaxed tailoring, prized Oxford shirts and exquisitely printed silk accessories, one of the first things we wanted to put our design principles to was the humble chore jacket.

The Four Horsemen Rides On

It was a bad idea… at least that’s what they were told. A tiny restaurant with a focus on natural wine, before everyone and their dog knew about native yeasts and volatile acidity, with a European-leaning menu in a corner of Williamsburg that, as chef Nick Curtola recalls, was “weird back then.” 

“Everyone we talked to, who had a restaurant, said that the reason there isn’t a natural wine bar and restaurant here is because it doesn’t work and you’re dumb,” says wine director and co-founder Justin Chearno. “Don’t build it, you’ll lose everything.”

“We did it anyway.”

Drake's in Paris

There are few things we enjoy more than a packed table full of friends. To celebrate our ongoing series of Paris Pop-Ups, we gathered a group of them at Le Petit Panisse, legendary bistro and a great place to gather. There was wine and steak frites, and a few sore heads the next morning, as there should be.
