Canvas Jacket (Navy)
SAINT JAMES CLOTHING
Saint James' canvas jacket, deep-pocketed in a dark washed navy, like those worn by generations of artists and tradesmen. A canvas jacket both hardwearing and comfortable. The weight of the cotton drill keeps you cool under the sun and warm as the day turns to evening. Should the weather turn you will find the garment both water resistant and windproof. All edges are double thickness and all seams are double stitched. Made in France.
Saint James clothing was born in 1889 in the town of its namesake, located a few miles from the sea, and close to Mont Saint-Michel in Southern Normandy. The Saint James story began when the Legallais family started to spin and dye the local wool and sell the skeins and wool balls to the shops of Brittany and Normandy, later spinning the wool into shirts for the fishermen. Leon Legallais, the then mayor or Saint-James transformed this workshop into a large industry and in 1929 the company went public.
