The bleu de travail or the working blue was first worn by French factory workers in the late 1800s. It was simple, practical (with all the useful pockets) and hard-wearing. Heavy cotton drill or heavy cotton moleskin (also kind of cotton) was dyed indigo blue because this color was inexpensive for workers' overalls, jackets, and pants. It has been a long way from a French railway track to a fancy party in NYC.
Now you know the ancestor of the Worker Motorcycle Jacket. We love it for the very simplicity and comfort. For nice motorcycle ride, we added Crave for Ride usuals: DuPont™ Kevlar® for the internal layer, pockets for protectors, and a collar reflection stripe.
Worker Denim Motorcycle Jacket is thicker than our other shirts.
If you prefer a lighter denim shirt, check out our Armalith Montana Motorcycle Shirt
