This vintage mackinaw coat was made in the late 1920s or early 1930s by the Utica DuxBak corporation of Utica, New York. DuxBak was well known for its high quality garments for outdoorsmen. They were perhaps better known for their canvas coats, vests and pants, but their wool makinaws were of equally high quality. This is an early version, with a caped front, game pocket, and flapped patch pockets. The coat has a shirt style collar with a particularly tall collar stand. The collar is lined in cotton drill, and the underside of the collar is faced with the same material. The snaps are of a ring type. Handwarmer pockets are partially covered by the front cape, and are stitched in a reverse “D-pocket” style. The flaps on the game pocket have a narrow, sharply scalloped flap. The label is of a rare style, with a black background and red and green text.
