This vest was made by a company called Maxwear, in the style of a 1930s work vest, similar to the ones made by Brown’s Beach Jacket and the sleeved versions made by Woolrich. It is made of thick wool approximating the pattern of an Indian blanket. It has a five snap front, with patch pockets. The back has adjuster tabs. Snaps have a star design, continuing the western theme started with the material.
This vintage leather vest was made in the small town of Madras, Oregon by the Modoc Manufacturing Company. It is made of what feels like buckskin, with a pile lining. The patch pockets are riveted, and the vest has a snap front. The logo is an Indian chief. I can’t find much on this company, other than they operated in the 1960s and 1970s.
