Skaggerac double breasted shawl collar leather mackinaw
This vintage jacket was made in New York by Skaggerac Sportswear in the 1950s. It is a heavy double breasted, shawl collar sheeplined model. It is made of heavyweight steerhide with a black mouton collar, a square front yoke, scalloped back yoke. The grain on the leather is incredible. Though the tag dates it to the 1950s, the style, materials, style of lining with corduroy hem, etc. are all consistent with coats of this style made in the 1930s. This style of coat had gone out of fashion for the most part by WWII. It has a custom order handwritten size tag, reading a size 50. With a 58″ chest, it’s even generous for that size.

Chest (pit to pit): 29″ (doubled = 58″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 24″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (base of collar to hem): 33-1/2″
