This casual piece of outerwear got its name, the chore coat, from laborers in 19th and early 20th century France. As its name suggests, the jacket was worn by working people—doing 'chores' like farming and laboring. We've added a modern edge to the classic style. Designed right here at DXL with proper proportions and a flattering fit for Big and Tall guys, this comfortable coat is easy to wear and allows for the freedom to move without restriction, making it a cold-weather must have. Crafted in 100% cotton, it features a corduroy collar for a rugged look.
