South Shore Chore Coat

$495
ColorDenim Charcoal
SizeXXSmall
Description

    The South Shore Denim Chore coat is based on the classic French Chore Coat. This hardy piece of outerwear has evolved over the past century from a practical uniform worn by blue-collar laborers to an everyday staple for men and women worldwide. This practical and easy-to-throw-on coat is made from 100% WeatherWool Denim, and it seems we are the only ones offering 100% Wool Denim!  Our Denim transcends the gap between formal and casual. From work to play, formal to forest, WeatherWool Denim is more than capable. 

     

    Designed for the shoulder season but cut with a relaxed fit to comfortably accommodate a heavy wool shirt or sweater underneath to push it into cooler temperatures.

     

    Although Denim and the Chore Coat are new for us, they conform to our original philosophy of Hardcore Luxury ... luxurious garments offering hardcore performance.  The Denim is soft and comfortable against bare skin, but handles weather and work.

    The South Shore Chore Coat comes in colors Denim Charcoal and Denim Indigo. 

      The South Shore Chore Coat, named for the South Shore of New York's Long Island, where it was developed by Advisor JR Morrissey, is our first offering in our new, 100% Wool Denim Fabric.

      The video was made by, and features, Advisor Cody Bokshowan.  At the end of the video, Cody enters a log cabin he made himself, starting with standing timber.  Check out @TrustinTimber on Instagram.

      This photo shows the Denim Charcoal and Denim Indigo colors, both front and back.  More explanation is on the Denim page linked above, but basically only half of the yarn in denim is typically dyed, and the denim weave creates a fabric with contrasting face and back.

      The latest information about our production is here.

      Our Fabric

      Our Fabric is the heart of what we do. We make our own Fabric, starting with raw wool carefully and specifically selected from a small group of ranches in the USA that meet our certification standards of long, strong, and comfortable fibers.

      Denim WeatherWool

      Denim is a high abrasion—and tear-resistant weave, making it a staple in workwear. Instead of using cotton, we produce our Denim from 100% WeatherWool-certified Wool. You'll find our Denim to be much softer and cozier than traditional cotton denim.

      FAQ

      Where is it made?

      All of our products are 100% made in the USA using 100% American-made wool and materials. We pay American citizens to make all of our garments. See more.

      Is WeatherWool in retail stores?

      No, it is only available directly through this Website.

      What are your garments designed for?

      We set out to make the best All-Purpose outerwear possible and we take that "ALL" part seriously. While some items may be better then others for specific needs we like to think we have the perfect garment for anything you do outside regardless if it is in the serving in military, hunting, camping, city, country, work or worship.

      Why is it so expensive?

      We never cut a single corner at any step. We make our own fabric, from the best wool in the USA. There are over 45 steps in making our fabric alone. We use the highest quality materials made in the USA. We have owner operated customer service on call to serve you and offer free shipping in USA and Canada as well as hassle free returns.

      Is WeatherWool Merino Wool?

      Not exactly. Merino is great wool and has been very well marketed over the years but pure merino alone is not actually suitable for us.

      We select our wool based on a number of characteristics including micron, strength, length, and comfort factor. With the help of our advisor Bob Padula we have determined the perfect recipe for our goals. Thanks to modern equipment we can test all the wool before we buy it and that wool is primarily coming from Rambouillet and Targhee breads.

      How do you clean WeatherWool

      Short answer, you almost never need to. It's self cleaning. We've had garments we've worn for 7 years that have never been cleaned other then some rain.

      However, things happen. If a lukewarm bath and dry flat doesn't do the trick, you can try wool-cleaner. Our full cleaning page is here.

      Can bugs bite through your fabric?

      We have not heard of any that can.

      What is your customer service policy?

      Our customers will be taken care of.

      Full Customer Service policy can be found here.

      About us

      Founders / Owners

      WeatherWool was founded in 2009 by Ralph and Debby DiMeo. Together with their children and a few friends they maintain 100% ownership of the company. Their full story can be read here.

      Direct Connection To The Source

      We make our own Fabric, starting with raw wool carefully and specifically selected from a small group of ranches in the USA that meet our certification standards. This isn't no stock photo. We're actually out there during shearing sampling wool and sharing stoies and good times with the ranchers and their families.

      The Best We Can Figure Out

      While most companies decide a price point, and reverse engineer a garment to meet that retail price, WeatherWool does the opposite. We make the best garment we can figure out how to make at every decision we face.Although our garments seem pricey to some our profit margins are below average and you're getting more value for your money and assurance that you're getting some of the best wool in the world.

      Not my typical chore coat

      "Chore Coat" to me likely means something a little bit different than it does to others. While I do wear my WeatherWool feeding, caring for & checking on the sheep - the WeatherWool Chore Coat is more of a "going to town coat" in my wardrobe. Most people wouldn't think of wearing a wool jacket/coat in June or July in Minnesota - but I'm proving them wrong and doing it comfortably and in style. "Aren't you hot, wearing a jacket?" they ask - in their "fancy/techy" plastic shirts, sweat dripping off their brows, and visibly over-heating. With a smile on my face, I cooly reply "No, I'm fine wearing my new wool denim jacket"..... as they touch it, ooh and awe, and then claim that it isn't wool. Heck yeah, I do this on purpose... WeatherWool and WeatherWool Denim is not like anything else I have and it is worth the bragging. And I have lots of other wool garments, most of them now relegated to the "other chore coat" category.

      A coat that I can wear anywhere

      This is a coat that is so versatile that I can wear on any occasions and on 3 seasons. The new denim wool fabric I think is softer and looks more durable. I’m starting to build my weatherwool collections starting from their peacoat which I still love but that one is for really colder weather.

      A piece to last

      This Chore coat is a incredibly thought out design that shows that the people making it actually intended it to be used. The small details like very strong durable buttons and tightly woven fabric show a product that doesn't fit into the current planned obsolesce model. I also greatly appreciate the hand warmer pockets being on the exterior surface of the abdominal drop pockets. This makes it much more useful packing in items to the main pockets and allowing for these hand warmer pockets to actually be used in real life. The fabric has a smooth soft hand feel to it that is dense but not ultra heavy. It feels like a product that will continue to hold up for a long time. A great piece to dress up or down depending on the occasion. I am excited WW released this new denim fabric and I am excited to see what other products they make with it. This is the kind of item you want to buy if you are a person that appreciates quality and craftsmanship and wants to have a long term connection with a product.

      A fantastic coat

      This is my third WeatherWool piece and it may be my favorite. The fabric is incredible; it's so soft and pleasant to wear. The cut is great and the detailing is phenomenal. I've taken it with me on a one-bag international trip and it's an incredibly versatile piece to have given the wide temperature range and the fact that it can be dressed up or down. Outstanding work.

      Beware this one weird design flaw

      My Weatherwool South Shore chore coat has revealed a major flaw: although the luxe wool denim indigo garment looks like a ruggedly stylish edit of a traditional chore coat, slips on easily, and feels comfortable and broken in at a first wearing, it draws so many compliments that it is nearly impossible to take off. What am I supposed to do? Wear this masterpiece of denim weaving and tailoring everywhere from Saturday chores and errands to Sunday socials to workday meetings and date nights? I'm asking. But I'm not sure I have a choice. Dang it, Ralph, and your advisor JR Morrissey too!
