This vintage shirt jacket was probably made in the 1960s. The influence of Hudson’s Bay point blanket coats is clear, with the classic red color scheme with black stripe. The cut is taken from a pullover shirt style of the 1950s, with two buttons at the neck. This one was probably made from a pattern for such a shirt, but made of striped material. It’s not wool, some kind of fleecy synthetic, but with its napped surface, it looks the part.

Chest (pit to pit): 27″
