1940s Palm Beach Goodall Springweave jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271865336045
This vintage jacket was made by Goodall, creators of the famed Palm Beach Cloth from their Springweave fabric. Springweave was introduced in early 1944. Goodall changed their name and label to Goodall Sanford in late 1944, so this is a rare and precisely date-able piece of vintage. This was from the early formulation of Springweave fabric, which consisted of lightweight wool and mohair. It has a nice herringbone weave to the fabric, a two button cut, and patch pockets. The jacket was sold by the Stix, Baer and Fuller men’s store.

Size: 38
Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 30-1/2″

1950s H Bar C western jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281501818727
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by noted western wear manufacturer, H Bar C ranchwear. It has razor sharp peak lapels, a squared off cutaway, patch pockets with scalloped, buttoned pocket flaps, a three button front, and a western scalloped yoke. It bears a 1949 amalgamated clothing workers of america label, with the pre (R) variant that dates it between 1949 and 1961. With the overall styling, I would place the dating at the tail end of the 1950s.
