The Light Work Jacket

Made to last

The problems with your jackets


The canvas is too thick


There are too few pockets


The cut is outdated


The seams don't hold up

We didn't slack off when working on this jacket

Not a blank canvas

This lightweight and durable canvas is made from 100% organic certified cotton. It's responsibly farmed and spun in Turkey and skillfully woven and finished in Italy. It's a quick drive up - we like to keep distances short and the planet happy - but it's proof enough that our canvas can take a beating. Want more?

Wind Breaker

A canvas doesn't have to be thick and heavy but like our Work Jacket, a champion in its weight category punching at 195g/m2. That's enough to keep your body warm and wind at bay.

Cut for work

The fit is more modern, adjusted all the way up to the sleeves so it doesn't get in between you and your work. You can button up right to the top, just close the lapel of your collar whenever the weather gives you the hairdryer treatment.

Sharpest tool

With one chest pocket and two deep front pockets, you have enough space to carry around what you need to front modern life. Reinforced openings keep things neat and sturdy.

Apply pressure when needed

We added snap-buttons with a strip of tape to reinforce the 2 side pockets. A reliable jacket doesn't spill your valuables.

Open secret

Second order of primary business: Adding an inside pocket with a reinforced opening so you can keep your personal affairs personal.

Stitch double, no trouble

If workwear is known for one thing, then that's being solid. We stuck to tradition and reinforced the seams with a double stitching.

On The Button

We know that sometimes you just have to roll up your sleeves, so we added some solid horn buttons to make it easier.

Icon rework

We took a classic icon and gave it a modern update. Because you don't have to sacrifice style for durability or forego functionality to have a great fit. Sometimes you really can just have it all.

The Team

Four of us started Asphalte back in 2016. With a few years of experience in fashion under our belts, we wanted to make clothes, but not just any old clothes. Well-made clothes, designed to last, using great materials and made in good conditions. The guys we wanted to kit were our mates, who liked clothes but who weren't willing to go all out on a pair of jeans. We send them a survey to find out what they expected from a brand. Their answers were so enlightening that we opened the questionnaires up to everyone. Best decision we ever made.

Since then, you've been at the start of every clothes we make. We ask for your opinion on a product before we get busy with the design process, and that's the way forward for us.

We're not here to reinvent the wheel. We're here to make your wardrobe classics with the best materials and the best manufacturers. Above all, we're here to make things simple, stuff that you'll still be able to wear in ten years' time.

Over the last 4 years, we've gradually put together the dream team to make it happen on a larger scale. Today, there are 40 of us working to make your favourite clothes, in a quality that was once reserved for a handful of men.
