1920s Red-Head Brand canvas hunting jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281511694000

This vintage canvas hunting jacket was made in the 1920s by Red Head Brand. It features the early variant of their makers label and of their buttons. The jacket is made of a double layer of canvas, with an internal game pocket (enclosed between the two layers instead of an open, rubberized lined pouch as was found on RedHead coats from the 1930s-on). There is access to the game pocket through internal slit pockets, similar to the access on a half-moon vest. The collar and cuffs are corduroy, and the shoulders have additional reinforcement. The hip cargo pockets are two separate U shaped pockets which share a flap. The breast pocket combines a watch pocket and a cigarette pocket, again under the same flap. There are grommet ventilated double underarm gussets for freedom of motion, and a throat latch hook and eye under the collar.
