This loose-fit boilersuit offers a simplistic design, featuring one chest pocket, two front pockets, a hidden front placket, and adjustable straps at the waist. The main seams are sewn with twin-needle stitches, providing a clean and workwear-oriented construction. From its silhouette to its making Ella is our love for boilersuits condensed into one, simple and beautiful, boilersuit. This Ella boilersuit is crafted from exquisite herringbone twill fabric. Its tightly woven construction gives it a slightly crisp texture, a dry feel, and a smooth appearance. The pattern of the fabric pays homage to vintage herringbone twills, and to ensure longevity and desirable aging property, we have piece-dyed it in a perfect French blue shade. The jacket has undergone a gentle wash, subtly accentuating the fabric's characteristics and garment construction. Curious to learn more about herringbone twill? We're delighted you asked! Herringbone twill is a variation of the regular twill weaving pattern. While regular twill, as seen in denim, exhibits a distinct diagonal pattern, herringbone twill features broken diagonal lines, creating a noticeable zig-zag pattern (more prominent than in a broken twill). The zig-zag pattern, resembling the bone structure of a herring, is compact yet distinctive. Herringbone twill is commonly found in vintage workwear jackets, particularly those of French and German origin, often in blue or grey hues. Moreover, it is well-known for its usage in vintage military fatigues, commonly referred to by its acronym HBT. The choice of herringbone twill in workwear and military garments can, to our knowledge, be attributed to two primary reasons. Firstly, the alteration of the twill direction enhances tear resistance. Secondly, during a time when sanforization and skewing processes were not yet developed, herringbone twill exhibited a reduced tendency to skew compared to regular twill. This aspect, similar to the purpose behind the development of broken twill, contributed to its popularity. There you have it, the ins and outs of herringbone twill.
