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.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271670833049
This vintage jacket was made by H.W. Carter & Sons of Lebanon, New Hampshire in the mid 1930s. It is made of heavy red and black point blanket material, in a single breasted mackinaw style. Unusual for a point blanket coat, this example has a game pocket, which does up with two early Hookless-style Talon zippers. The coat has a zipper hood which snaps down into a collar. The hood zips open and closed with a Talon zipper, the design of which dates this jacket to c.1937. The coat bears a United Garment Workers of America union label, as well as a black and yellow tag identifying the material as water repellent and all wool. The jacket is fully lined in mustard colored cotton, similar to what Woolrich was using on their hunting coats in this period, especially in its use of a single patch breast pocket. The mackinaw has snap closure cargo pockets as well as handwarmers.

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26-1/4″
