Todd Snyder x The Met Van Gogh Cypress Chore Coat

Todd Snyder + The Met

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 1 review

The traditional chore coat silhouette gets an artistic update in this limited-edition collab with The Met. Our take on the utilitarian classic features workwear-inspired detailing: three pockets reinforced with rivets for durability, a brush or pen pocket, a D-ring for your keys, and a locker loop at the back to hang it all up from. The coat itself is a fitting reference to the jackets painters often wear while they work, as is the canvas it’s made of. Printed on top is an adaptation of Vincent van Gogh’s (Dutch, 1853–1890)Wheat Field with Cypresses(1889). Before painting this majestic horizontal composition, Van Gogh illustrated the scene from Saint-Rémy in reed-pen drawings he sent to his brother. The garment’s gold topstitching plays nicely off of the yellow tones in The Met’s painting.

As part of its mission tocollect, study, conserve, and present significant works of art across time and cultures in order to connect all people to creativity, knowledge, ideas, and one another, The Metropolitan Museum of Art invited Toddto design a wearable, art-inspired collection. “The colors and brushstrokes of Van Gogh, Degas, and Manet feel incredibly modern, incredibly relevant,” says Todd of the pieces he chose to adapt for this unique collaboration.

Delightful Piece

The print on this is really outstanding. Even with the numerous patch pockets, all the elements were perfectly cut and sewn with the print. The coat style itself (i.e. ignoring the print) may be my favorite chore coat pattern, or certainly among them. Good style & pocket configuration. Would absolutely buy this in other colorways or textiles. Although with this one, if you hang it on a wall hook, it's art.

Only criticism is that I would strongly prefer a different country of origin. Normally wouldn't have even ordered it, but it's a really unique piece, and I'm so pleased with it I am strongly considering the Degas version regardless.
