Here we have a rare 1930s Pella chore coat cut from their coveralls design. When it comes to authentic Midwestern farm workwear from the 1930s, this is about as authentic as it gets. This beauty was found in a grain bin in western Minnesota. And it smells like it was found in a grain bin in western Minnesota. I'm leaving the authentic aroma for you to enjoy as well.
As you can see, the bottom part of the original Pella coveralls were cut off. My guess is was hotter than a griddle in that grain bin, and off went the legs. It essentially became a pullover since the Talon zipper has two zipper heads going in opposite directions. Even through all the adjustments, the piece screams early workwear denim and reflects all the great American history.
Here's a link about Pella's history of making rugged workwear for over 100 years.
The faded tag reads "a Pella Weather-Fo Garment." All right then!
The rare denim coat measures 23" from pit to pit and about 28' from collar to bottom cut. As you can see, there is patina full of history everywhere, including stain, general wear, and worn hems. The bottom cut could use a hem to lock it up. As stated above, this baby was stored for decades in a grain bin. The scent is all the proof you need. Given it all, this thing is still tougher than a coffin nail. Given that it's 1930s America, this shouldn't come as a surprise. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
