1940s Seattle Woolen Company jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281409416979
This vintage jacket was made in Seattle, Washington by the Seattle Woolen Company. The company was founded in 1891 by Thomas Eddy Eyanson and produced garments for rugged outdoor wear, catering to the flood of people leaving for Alaska through Seattle. They were the first woolen mill in Washington State, and were headquartered in Kirkland Washington, directly across from downtown Seattle. After Eyanson’s death in 1908, his son Edward Eyanson took over the mill. They produced fabrics for Filson as well as selling garments under their own name. Note the extreme similarity in label design between that of The Seattle Woolen Co and CC Filson of the same period.
The jacket is a waist length cut with peak lapels and a button front. The pockets are all trimmed in leather for extra durability. There are spacious canvas pockets inside.

Chest (pit to pit): 20-1/2″
Shoulder to shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22″

1930s Montgomery Ward Pony Horsehide aviator cossack jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281409286745
This vintage leather jacket was made in the late 1930s-early 1940s. It was made in California and was sold by Montgomery Ward under their Sportswear label. The “Aviator” style, a precursor to the modern motorcycle jacket, was popular in this late ’30s-1940s time period, and this is an excellent example. It has an asymmetrical / double breasted zipper design, with handwarmer pockets and double zipped breast pockets. The zippers are all Talons. The chest zippers are the originals, with ring style pulls and Talon branded sliders, a style which stopped production in the 1940s. The main zipper is a replacement, probably done in the late 1950s. Interestingly, the slider has had the pull replaced with a 1930s fan-tail pull, possibly off the original zip. The jacket has a half-belt back with teardrop shaped buckles. The jacket is fully lined, with a wonderful label with a California mission and palm tree. The jacket is made of pony horsehide.

Chest (pit to pit): 20″ (doubled = 40″)
Waist (side to side): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23-3/4″
Length (base of collar to hem): 21″

This vintage coat was made in the 1920s. It is a shawl collared mackinaw style, with a sheepskin collar. The coat is belted with an early style buttoned belt.
