Bleu de travail” means “work blues" in French. So-called because the majority of French workwear was dyed a deep, occasionally purple-y indigo blue.
The industrial revolution led to the use of blue working clothes (Bleu de travaille).
They are resistant, practical, easy to wear, clothing that stands the test of time.
The Bleu de travaille has become an iconic vintage staple that represents classe à la cool. They can be worn with the sleeves and legs rolled, relaxed, fitted or oversized. A truly versatile style that adapts to the wearer and gets better with age.
The shortened sleeves prevented it from getting caught in a sharp machine and gives it a distinct style.
