Great chore jacket

First time buying from Freenote Cloth and I am very impressed with the quality of the jacket. The fit is on point and the size chart is accurate. The quality of the jacket is excellent.

Awesome coat

I was in the market for a chore coat and this one caught my eye. It's a beautiful color that isn't your typical duck canvas -- there's just enough variation to me that it looks that much more unique. The material is top notch, where in which the exterior feels rugged, yet the interior is smooth and comfortable. The fit is great -- the sizing chart worked perfectly -- I aimed for something a smidge oversized so I could layer underneath. At the same time the cut is great so I don't look too boxy.

In general, I've been wildly impressed with products I've purchased from Freenote, and this is no exception. It continues to set the standard in terms of pieces within my wardrobe.

The gold standard for chore coats

I love chore coats. They've been a staple in my wardrobe for the past decade and part of my personal style. Something about having an excessive amount of pockets and the roomier fit make it the easiest go-to jacket archetype to rock for practical reasons in every season except for summer.

When Freenote releases something, it often strikes me as the "Rolls Royce" of whatever that thing is. The CC-1 is no exception.

Fit- Roomy. There's ample space in the arms and chest so that you get that extended range of motion, whether buttoned up or unbuttoned. The extra room means that you can both layer it and wear it with a t shirt, making this a solid three season jacket. I recommend sizing down if you're between sizes. The drape of the moleskin feels both soft and tough at the same time. No need to break this thing in; it's comfortable and ready to go out of box.

Details- There's alot of me to talk about here. The pockets are solid and interesting; they're shaped in Freenote's signature pocket shape. It gives a geometric vibe to the jacket that work really well with the minimalist silhouette. The buttons are really beautiful, and look very interesting when unbuttoned. Each horn button has a unique finish, which provides a nice contrast with the uniform fabric. But my favorite detail is the hidden front placket. At first I questioned this decision; if you're going to invest in nice buttons, why hide them? But this decision makes the jacket look so incredibly clean when buttoned up; it’s minimalist and slick. That's not something I've seen in another chore coat I've owned before.

The Color:
While everything else is great, this is the main reason I bought the coat. I'm a sucker for beautiful colors on clothing and the gold version of this coat... it’s like the muted gold of an LA sunset. The color is hits just the right level of saturation, lightness, and hue such that it isn't boring, and it isn't too loud. That zone is very hard to hit with color and makes the difference between just being another face in the crowd, and drawing unwanted attention to yourself. But on top of hitting the right color qualities, the moleskin has an amazing sheen in the light... a sheen that's not too bright and not too dull. I hope that sheen continues as the jacket is worn in.

If there is one design critique to offer, it's that I would put buttoned pocket flaps on the outside bottom pockets, rather than just on the outside chest pocket. The pockets are plenty big, but I personally like the mental security that what I put in my most accessible pockets won't fall out or be grabbed. However, I do realize that this would make it look more like a hunting jacket and complicate the silhouette, so I understand the give and take between clean design and practicality.

In conclusion; amazing chore coat, the best I've owned. Hoping to put some good wear on it when things cool down!

The CC-1 is the newest addition to the Freenote outerwear collection. Taking design inspiration from various vintage chore coats we collected over the years, we decided to make a chore coat of our own. We added a flap with a hidden button closure to the chest pocket, and adjusted the pocket shapes to match the back pockets of our denim. We also concealed the front buttons in the placket for a clean and streamlined look. True to the utility required of a chore coat, we opened up the dimensions of this jacket for improved mobility. Extra room was added to the cross shoulder and chest, and the sleeves were rebalanced for drop in the armhole to allow greater ease of movement.

The CC-1 is offered in two colors of Japanese Moleskin: navy and gold. This fabric stays true to the Freenote philosophy that clothing should improve with wear, as it will soften and conform to the wearer’s body over time. Moleskin is 100% cotton, however it has a smooth side and a rough side, similar to leather. We chose to use the soft side on the inside of the jacket to allow the user to enjoy the softness of the fabric. The buttons are real horn, three hole buttons from Italy, custom made for Freenote, and easily one of the most expensive buttons in our collection. These features combine to create a refined, modern jacket that is just as tough and hardwearing as it is handsome.
