http://www.ebay.com/itm/281428132367
This vintage western jacket was made in the 1950s by the Herman K. Lavin Co. of St. Paul Minnesota under the Land-N-Lakes label.

The jacket is a western cut, with a square cutaway, peak lapels, fancy yokes front and back and bi-swing shoulders. The gray flannel tends to quiet the design a bit. It is fully lined.

1950s Western Roebucks jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281424935900
This vintage western jacket was made in the 1950s and was sold by Sears under the Roebuck’s label. Roebucks was, at the time, their house brand for westernwear- mostly jeans and denim jackets, but also fancier items like this. I have had several other jackets made by the same manufacturer (same factory labels, same cut and detailing), all sold under different store labels, so somewhere there was a factory producing these to be sold under house labels. The jacket is made of tweed and has peak lapels, a scalloped front yoke, pleated front and scalloped pocket flaps. The back has a fancy yoke and deep dual pleats. It is fully lined, and according to the tag, the model name was the Guardsman.

Chest (pit to pit): 23-1/2″ (doubled = 47″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 31″
