In his self portraits Van Gogh wears blue jackets and smocks. Keen to depict himself as a worker as well as a painter, he also used these classic blue uniforms as a way to manipulate colour in his paintings - enhancing the bright orange of his hair.
We have sourced these jackets from authentic French workwear brand Vétra. Founded in 1927, Vétra has always made well detailed and long-lasting garments for workers, craftsmen and artists.
We immediately fell in love with this family business, their approach to durable materials and quality manufacturing. This is a jacket for life!
We stock this jacket in the classic workwear colour Hydrone Blue as well as a beautiful Quince for those looking for something a bit different. The copper buttons are a detail we particularly appreciate.
We stock a variety of colours, styles and sizes. Look carefully at our photos and read the product descriptions to appreciate the details and qualities of the materials.
This product is only available in person at the Van Gogh House gift shop.
