This vintage sheeplined coat was made in the early 1930s and was sold by the JC Penney Co. It has a nice early Penney’s label. It has a green cotton shell, with leather reinforced handwarmer and cargo pockets. As is typical of the style, it has loops instead of buttonholes. The coat is lined with sheepskin and has a sheepskin collar. Sleeves are blanket lined and there are knit storm cuffs. It appears that the sleeves were shortened at some point, exposing these cuffs.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271280900728
This vintage suit was made c. 1958 by Penney’s. It is made of wool whipcord in a workwear / western style. The jacket is a fairly standard workwear cossack style, with a zipper front, action back, cargo and handwarmer pockets, a zip breast pocket, and button adjusters on the cuffs and waist. Zippers are both brass Talons of the type used in the 1950s. The jacket is unlined. While the jacket is in good shape, the pants of the suit are more heavily worn and faded. They have the Penney’s tag as well. The waistband has a rubber “chain” to keep the wearer’s shirt tucked in, however the rubber is now crumbling. The fly has a brass Talon zip. The pants are cuffed.
