I fell in love with the simplicity of the cut and material, the functional pockets and its almost heavy shirt like quality. It looks like a worker's jacket and in France is known as the bleu de travail. A French family showed me some of their great grandfather's original bleu de travail jackets dating from the beginning of the 20th century and before.

It has become quite popular as a jacket in recent months, both on the streets and catwalk.
I photographed Thomas, in Dublin wearing a suit like version of the blue jacket. He tells me that there is one being made for me in Africa. I hope he's not joking.
