18th/Early 19th century Work Jacket

(5 reviews) Write a Review
Customer wearing one of our work jackets

Short "work" jackets were commonly worn by workmen and laborers, among others, throughout the 18th and early 19th century.  Our reproduction is double breasted and features your choice of outer cloth (wool or linen) and is lined with linen/cotton blend in a color that accents the outer cloth.  The coat features a double row of buttons on the front and buttoned functioning cuffs.  It also features an exterior pocket.  What sets our coat apart from the rest is not only the quality of cloth and construction, but also that it features completely hand sewn button holes.  Your choice of buttons (cloth covered, wooden, or brass coin) are also available.  


Note - If your size is not in stock at the time of order, a wait of 4-6 weeks may be necessary.  Please understand this before ordering, as we cannot accept mid-order cancellations because an item doesn't make it to you for a particular event.  


Sizing info: this garment is sized similar to modern sport or suit coats, so choose your chest size and keep in mind if you are going to be wearing a vest under the coat.  Also take into account if you have an unusually long or short sleeve length, let us know that information in the customer comments.

    18th Century Work Jacket

    I am extremely pleased with the quality and workmanship on this product. It fits better than most other reproduction clothing I have purchased in the past. I was concerned it would be too tight (fits perfectly in the shoulders). Value for the money is second to none. I highly recommend it.

    Very well made jacket. Glad I ordered one size up. The fit is good. The only thing I wish it had was a small stand up collar.

    Is there a chance I could buy a piece of dark blue material to add a collar to my jacket
