1950s Porter’s Westernwear cowboy jacket

This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s and was sold by Porter’s Frontier Fashions, with locations in Phoenix and Tucson. It is made of oatmeal tweed, in a classic western cut, with peak lapels, front and back scalloped western yokes, flapped, pleated, buttoned patch pockets, bi-swing shoulders and a breast pocket. The jacket bears a 1949 Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America union label, the particular variant dating it between 1949 and 1962. From the jacket’s details, I would put the dating in the mid 1950s.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 31″
