Blluemade's Autumn/Winter '23 collection takes inspiration from the architecture of New England, specifically the charming aesthetics of seaside homes in and around Cape Cod. The way these light, warm buildings, designed around a central hearth, contrast the Northeast's Winter landscape and late Autumn sun informed the color palate of their new styles.

The fabrics are selected with a similar mindset, choosing materials that are both soft and strong, comfortably warm but also sturdy and durable, a trait once again shared with the longstanding architecture of New England, as many original Colonial-Era homes still stand today.

Blluemade's Chore Coat isn't trying to reinvent the wheel. Taking design cues from OG French work jackets, it's got everything you want and nothing you don't, combining a slightly boxy fit, three external patch pockets for utility, and a spread collar that layers exceptionally well while open (but buttons up nicely too). The buttons are pleasantly large, the seams are flat-felled for durability, and there's a fourth pocket on the inside for additional storage, really cementing this thing as an All-Star chore coat.

It's made from a returning favorite fabric here at S&S — Blluemade's Italian-milled 100% cotton velvet. Despite using no synthetic yarns, it has all the expected luster and softness of a non-cotton velvet fabric. Exceptionally comfortable, and warmer than your average twill or canvas, it's an absolute stunner that will only get better over time, and this year's Walnut brown colorway is a total showstopper, with a deep, rich green/brown tone that comes alive in direct light.

Each piece is designed in Brooklyn and then cut-and-sewn together in NYC's Garment District, at a family-owned and women-run workshop that Blluemade have been working with for years.
