1930s RedHead Brand hunting jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281534410261
This vintage hunting jacket was made by Red Head Brand in the mid 1930s and was sold by the Sportswear department of Marshall Field & Co. It is made of mid-weight canvas, with a corduroy collar and cuff linings. The collar opens with 1906 patent snaps made by the Alma Mfg. Co of Baltimore Maryland to reveal an mid 1930s production pin-lock Talon no.3 fantail zipper. That zipper converts the foldable flat hood, (patent no. 1972585, granted 1934) into a wearable one. The breast pocket has a smaller watch pocket which shares the larger pocket’s flap. There are two rows of pocket flaps, one for large cargo pockets, the other for canvas shotgun shell pockets. There is an internal game pocket (canvas, this jacket was made prior to rubberization of game pockets becoming the norm) which has hook closures to open and close it. Access to the game pocket is through flaps on the sides. There are ventilation grommets at the armpits.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22″
Length (base of collar to hem): 28″

1930s-1940s John David double breasted overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271712674846
This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s-early 1940s by John David of New York. It is double breasted with a 3×6 buttoning and a belted back. The coat is fully lined. It has an Amalgamated Clothing workers of America label, but the way it is stitched, I can’t tell if it is a 1936 or 1939 variant. The styling of the coat points to a pre-war date of manufacture. This is an extremely heavy overcoat.

Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 48″
