measurements: 28 1/2" long 22" wide 31 1/2" shoulder to cuff
Ghost Office's series of tea dyed work coats are all made from the wardrobe turnover of white collar jobs. we use white shirts, add extra pockets, remove collars, blunt traditional hems, sometimes add length and then dye the whole thing with black tea. the result is a warm, mottled beige coat. putting on this coat signals the entrance of a working space, whether that’s oil on canvas, cleaning the bathtub, making mille-feuille or sitting down to write.
Ghost Office offers a limited range of handmade garments each recycled from preexisting clothing, echoing the tradition of distressed denim, denim that has been sanded to a soft finish and seems to announce how hard the wearer has worked at whatever it is that they do. This softness, those holes and tears translate into authenticity and sexiness, maybe because work is sexy, all the more so for being slightly bodiless as one is when lost within a jumpsuit. Whether you’re doing thinking work, physical work, artistic work, housework or office work, you might find that these unisex, mostly sizeless pieces fit. All money spent on materials goes to charities. Ghost Office doesn't use plastic, wrap the jumpsuits in tissue paper or add their own label. They remove labels. The mark of gold repair somewhere on the garment is the only sign of their name.
