In honor of the newly opened Freeman’s online shop, we thought we’d draw your attention to this handsome waxed cotton chore jacket—which doubles as an explanation of why New Yorkers are so taken by the shop in the first place.

You probably won’t need it until September rolls around, but by then it’ll be just about perfect: the rare beautiful item in your closet you don’t feel bad seasoning with a little rainwater and axle grease. It’s not as trendy as it was a few years back, but this is the kind of gear that outlasts trend pieces.
