It is made in California of Vat Dyed Mercerized Sanforized Bouldercord whipcord.  The jacket is waist length, with small, mid-set flapped patch pockets and a shirt style collar.  It has a Talon zipper, with a square hole pull and Talon marked U shaped stop box, which put the date of manufacture in the years immediately after WWII.

1950s brown double breasted suit jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401007304262
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s. It is double breasted, with a 4×6 closure, half lining and Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America 1949 union label. Unfortunately the original owner removed the label in this jacket, along with all the labels in all his clothes, some of which I also have listed. The fabric is lightweight with a certain rough quality reminiscent of Palm Beach cloth.

Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 30-3/4″

Allen Cowboy Suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271986534089
This vintage suit was made by the Allen Mfg. Co of Denver Colorado in 1963. This style of western suit, with its wide peak lapels and squared cutaway emerged on the western fashion scene just after WWII, a “greatest hits” collection of all the wildest detailing of prewar suits- the razor sharp peak lapels, the bi-swing shoulders, the saddlebag pockets. The style stayed virtually unchanged through the 1950s. In the early 1960s, it fell out of favor for suddenly extremely narrow notch lapels and different detailing. It’s surprising to see such a late date in a suit of this style. Also interesting is that this suit does not have the yoked western style back commonly associated with this style. The pants have subtle western scalloping to the pockets, wide belt loops and are cuffless.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/4″
Length (base of collar to hem: 29-1/4″

Waist (side to side): 17-1/2″ (doubled = 35″)
Outseam: 43″
Inseam: 30-1/2″
Rise: 12-1/2″
