1918 dated WWI army overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281645258225
This vintage overcoat was made in 1918 by Cohen Endel . . . of New York and was distributed by the New York Depot quartermaster. The coat is double breasted, with a belted back and buttoned throat latch. There is a secondary stamp from the New York Depot, stamped Marvin Falk and what looks like 1933. The belt-back is is sewn over the tag and lining, and from its construction, looks like it may have been added later. There is a army air corps patch on the shoulder, obviously added later than WWI, however if the coat was re-issued in the 1930s, it would likely have been added at that point. The As is typical of coats of this period, it is only partially lined.

1930s Guiterman Brothers Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket Mackinaw Coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271821794567
This vintage coat was made in the 1930s in St Paul, Minnesota by Guiterman Brothers, who at that point were owned by Gordon and Ferguson. The coat is tailored from red Hudson’s Bay Company Point blanket material, and bears the label used by them in this 1930s timeframe. The Guiterman Brothers label has been partially worn away, but Guiterman is partially legible, as is the GB crest. The coat is double breasted, with points showing, and the black portion of the blanket used as contrast for the collar.

A bit about Guiterman Bros, from a piece I wrote for “The Art of Vintage Leather Jackets”
Guiterman Brothers was founded in 1883 and incorporated in 1904. They began using the Summit “Town & Country” name in 1904. In the early 1910s, Guiterman Brothers pioneered the attached soft collared shirt. They also called it the Summit. The company had a plant at 352 Silbey Street, St. Paul, MN, which still stands. They enjoyed prosperity during the 1910s, riding the Mackinaw boom of 1915. They were supposedly the first company to coin the name “windbreaker”. As shown above, their “Town and Country” Coats and vests shared the distinctive double snap Knit-Nek. During WWI, Guiterman Bros. produced flying coats for US aviators. In 1928-1929, the company was purchased by Gordon and Ferguson.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled – 48″)
