It's a bit funny at this time in the 'work wear' trend to actually have a item called the 'the original work wear jacket'. Whatever you call it, it's a really nice jacket from Albam. Their English made products seem to be getting more refined each season with a great balance of simple and useful details. The double thick pockets beef the coat up a bit without taking away from the simplicity. It's apparently based on an old French work wear coat as well, using only 4 buttons down the front. I have been scouring eBay a fair bit looking for something like this, and at 109 Pounds, it might be worth ending the search.
