With a stylistic focus that zooms in on the era where denim transitioned from "workwear" to a casual fabric, Fullcount were the first brand to start making their denim from hand-picked Zimbabwean cotton, which is famous for its long staple length (granting it both greater softness and durability than short staple cottons).
Fullcount's Chore Coat's are designed with the long term in mind - they've got an old school, vintage fit, with a wide and short body, heavy duty double-needle stitching, metal buttons, and sturdy fabrics that only getting better looking with wear. It's got no unnecessary details, just a solid fit, three external pockets, and a lifetime of wear ahead of it.
It's made from a 100% cotton heavyweight 8-wale corduroy fabric, woven with compacted yarns for maximum insulation and softness. Compact yarns are a recent innovation, only made possible by modern yarn-spinning machines, and are both stronger and softer than "regular" and combed yarns (another high quality yarn produced with a majority of long staple fibers). The cord itself it some of the very best we've ever handled, with a robust drape, gorgeous luster, and exceptional warmth & comfort.
It's dyed a rich nut brown color, with a dark nap that scuffs to reveal a lighter core beneath, and will develop a unique patina over time with wear and washing. The dying for the fabric takes place at a factory in the Senshu region of Osaka, Japan, using traditional methods - the color itself considered one of Japan's "national treasures" as Fullcount tells it.
