I picked this up yesterday at an antique shop in Lemoyne, Pennsylvania. This is a Waltham Chicago, with a Swiss made movement, after the American manufacture of Watham watches had stopped and the company name changed hands. But they don’t get much cleaner.
I recently won a drawing from the Pecard Leather Care co. for some mini leather care kits. Very cute, with the festive jingle bells on them. Pecard makes great stuff, I use their antique leather dressing exclusively, and am always amazed at the improvement seen after use.
This vintage hunting vest was made by Hettrick Sportswear, “a product of Hettrick Mfg. Co, Toledo, Ohio”. It is made of brown canvas duck, softened by decades of wear. It has elasticized loops for shotgun shells and a bellows breast pocket. The vest should fit a size 38.Chest: 19-1/2″
This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s by Campus sportswear. It is made of navy blue steerhide, with an attached belt and mouton collar. It has a talon zipper with a lucky rabbits foot pull. It has a green quilted liner, and is tagged a size 18- these jackets were targeted towards high school and college kids, hence the sizing. Please go by the measurements. There is some wear to the leather, but no real damage. I’ve attached a photo of this jacket next to a black leather jacket to give an idea of the color difference.Chest: 19-1/2″ (doubled = 39″)Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
