1930s Allen Stockman suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400949877547
This vintage suit was made in the 1930s in Denver Colorado by Allen Brand, maker of stockman’s garments. It is made of heavyweight mackinaw wool, with a waist length jacket. The jacket is button front, with a double button waistband and buttoned side adjusters. The pants are flat front, button fly, cuffless, and have western style belt loops. As was typical in this era of workwear and outerwear made from materials like this, the jacket and pants are unlined. The jacket has a honorable discharge “ruptured duck” pin in one lapel and an American Legion pin in the other. When I bought this suit, I was told that it was worn home after WWII by its original owner, and stored unworn since 1946.
