I own this jacket’s twin and wear it regularly. So much cleaner of a design than later denim jackets with handwarmer pockets. And when they’re cut short, like a proper denim jacket is, you don’t need them.
These vintage boots were made in the 1930s, and have short shafts with a deeply scalloped top cut. They have leather soles and narrow, tall, nailed leather heels. While the flashy boots of the ’30s-’50s survive, the plainer, workingman’s boots like this are extremely hard to come by. They measure 12″ heel to toe, 4″ at the widest point. While the leather isn’t cracked, it would take some work to get these back into wearable condition.
This is a vintage United States Postal Service canvas mail bag. It is marked 3 on one side and 12-73 on the other. It has a drawstring closure with a locking closure on the string.
