1920s Fieldmaster half moon hunting vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281433509205
This vintage vest was made in the late 1920s. It was sold by Sears under the Fieldmaster Gun Coats label. This label design is the early version used by Sears during this period. In the 1930s, these were mostly sold under the Double Duty label, and had slightly different detailing. The vest (or sleeveless coat as period ads always refer to these as) has an interior game pocket with a belt adjuster. The half moon pocket gives front access to this pocket. The shoulders are reinforced and the vest has two large wraparound bellows pockets.

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Length (collar to hem): 24″

1930s canvas saddlebags

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281424920712
This vintage canvas bag was made in the 1930s. It has early talon zippers, with the D shaped stoppers at the top (before they switched to the solid metal stops in the ’40s) and a rare variant of the bell-shaped pull. The slider is of the plain-back style (no stampings) which was used in the early-mid 1930s. The end of the opening on the bag is leather reinforced. Unlike regular saddlebags, which are essentially two bags with a separate connection piece, these are a single, continuous bag, shaped roughly like a barbell. The ends are bucket-bottomed, and have drainage grommets both in the bottom and on both sides. The zippers open the entire bag and run vertically, as opposed to the horizontal openings usually seen on this type of bag. The heavy canvas started out life as a deep forest green, as can be seen in the last photograph, but has faded heavily over time. This is perfect for motorcycles or just as a rugged over-the shoulder carryall.

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″
