This vintage jacket was made between 1936 and 1938 by A.G. Meier & Co. They were located at 205 W Monroe St, Chicago, IL and produced uniforms and caps. This jacket was produced for a railroad employee, and is single breasted, with a four button front. It has stitching at the cuffs and no breast pocket. The jacket has four spacious interior pockets, all made from heavy sailcloth. There is evidence of railroad insignia at the collar and on the cuffs. At some point, the jacket was converted to be worn as streetwear and the original brass ring-back buttons were changed out for sewn-on plastic ones.
