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″

Famous D-Pocket motorcycle jacket
This vintage jacket was made in Canada by “Famous”. It is strongly reminiscent of the also Canadian-produced Brimaco D-Pocket motorcycle jacket, which was in turn inspired by the Design of Harley Davidson’s “Cycle Champ” D-Pocket. So although this one was produced in the 1960s, the design and detailing go back to the 1940s. The jacket has a map pocket with sub cigarette pocket, mirrored by a larger patch pocket on the other side of the asymmetrical zipper. The jacket has zipped cuffs with 1930s-1940s style cuff detailing. It has a plaid lining, and a Canadian produced (left tracked) Acme zipper.

Chest (pit to pit):24″ (doubled = 48″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22″

Georgetown Leather Design half-belt leather jacket
This vintage leather jacket was made by Georgetown Leather Design. This was made in the late 1960s in the early days of Georgetown Leather Design, a high-end DC area leather company, before they opened their other area locations in the early 1970s and changed their label. The jacket is made in a half-belt cossack style, popular from about 1935 to the late 1950s. By the 1960s, most manufacturers producing this silhouette had changed the dimensions and detailing, however this one plays it completely straight, and other than the label and quilted lining, it could easily pass for one made nearly 30 years prior. It is made in heavy leather, probably steerhide, with a wonderful patina. The main zip is a brass Talon, as is the pocket zipper. The jacket has scaloped cuffs, a belted back, bi-swing shoulders, and a short, trim cut.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18-1/2″
Waist: 19″ (doubled = 38″)
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff):21-3/4″
Length (base of collar to hem): 23-3/8″

1940s Symax Shawl Collar barnstormer jacket
This vintage coat was made in the late 1940s by the Symax Garment Company of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It is made in a double breasted, belted, shawl collared style. It has a gray collar, a black leather body with handwarmer pockets and flapped cargo pockets and a full belt. While this style had fallen out of favor in the United States by the early 1940s, it retained some popularity north in Canada through into the early 1950s. It can be distinguished from earlier manufactured models by its quilted lining, which replaced the sheepskin and corduroy liners which were more popular pre-war.

Chest (pit to pit): 27″ (doubled = 54″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 35″

1960s Brent half-belt leather jacket
This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1960s for Montgomery Ward under their Brent label. It is a classic half-belt cossack leather jacket style, popular from the 1930s-1960s. While it is not labeled, with its heavier weight, this feels like a steerhide rather than horsehide. This one has a larger Talon zipper than earlier models, as well as a quilted nylon lining. These are rare to find in larger sizes like this, and even rarer to find in such good condition.
