Veste Ouvrier (workman’s jacket):
Inspired by early French work wear gear, the first installment of the MFSC Apache collection is a our version of a French worker’s coat.
We combined elements of several 1900′s 1940′s pieces to make our veste ouvrier. We kinda like that one…

Both fabric options are RAW and unwashed, and will shrink lightly with cold wash/hang dry.
Guaranteed to mess up your car seat, but we figured they have been around on battle fields and in factories since the 1840′s, so we’re taking the risk. The buckle is removable and you can switch to one that fits your needs.
