1961 Sunoco work coat


This vintage Sunoco uniform was made in 1961 by the Hirsch Tyler company of Philadelphia, makers of precision uniforms. It is a four button, single breasted style, with wide lapels and a large patch breast pocket, embroidered with the Sunoco logo. Very stylish flaps on the pockets. The jacket has a warm blanket lining, and reinforcement backing buttons. Interestingly, the tailor and union labels are sewn to the inside of the jacket, as there are no inside pockets to hide them in, as would be typical.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
