Delivery & Returns

A smart casual navy blue cotton canvas jacket for men, made in France by Saint James label. A great quality single breasted garment, straight cut with two large front pockets, a small one on the chest and a small internal one, unlined, buttoned up, collar, with the label embroidered on the inside back and one small label tag sewn on the left pocket.

Very well made. Perfect for the seaside and just as suitable for a urban relaxed look, if you are after a French work or chore jacket type.

100% cotton canvas, machine washable, the navy blue is a dark navy.

Sizing from small to XXXL.


1. The manufacturer has made changes to the design with the 2020 production, therefore we have a mix of stock :

-  Listed as "OLD REF": the past years and 2019 design is a bit longer with more detailing on pockets and cuffs. The small internal pocket is also hidden behind a large front pocket. Only size Medium and XXL left.

- Listed as "NEW REF": the 2020 design has been simplified, shortened in body length and the sleeve length has slightly been adjusted too. The small internal pocket is now on the chest with the threads showing through, on the same level as the small external pocket.

Please check the measurement differences in our table below before ordering. In any doubt, contact us.  

Sorry for the images, done at different times with different lights, so the fabric may look different but it is in fact exactly the same canvas fabric and same dye colour for the 2 references.

2. If you are replacing your old jacket, it is imperative that you button up your jacket and measure pit to pit x 2,  to compare with our garment's measurements below to assess which new size is the closest. The design in terms of sizing has been changed a few times over the past 8 years ! Check as well the length as it was shortened with the 2020 production.

de rigueur

I was after a French Worker jacket for a while but when new they tend to look somewhat unauthentic and the fit is on the roomy side. I tracked this St James jacket down to The Nautical Company and it looked perfect - heavier cotton with some texture, a bit distressed so looks worn-in and a slimmer fit compared with length. I've had it a few days now and in this chilly spring we're having it's a great outerwear weight and actually very wind-resistant. It wears well with jeans and chinos, get a Breton top to complete the look! Quality is really excellent, no loose threads and buttons are well attached. The sizing was true to expectation - I'm a 40" / medium and the jacket fits perfectly. I think this will be a 3 season staple for me. Recommended. (May 09 2017, 23:02 pm)
