This vintage jacket was made by Bob Allen Hunting Clothing of Des Moines, Iowa. It is made from Galey and Lord’s Klondike fabric. The jacket has a quilted gun pad on the right shoulder, making this a right handed jacket. The right side of the shirt style corduroy collar snaps down with a Scovill Mfg. Co snap to keep it out of the way. The pockets are all pleated with panels on the sides for expansion. The jacket has a bi-swing back for greater freedom of motion, and the sleeves have shirt style cuffs. The back is belted. The “belt” flips up to reveal buttons which detach the Talon zipper closing game pouch. These buttons are riveted to an internal belt to support the game pouch when it is fully loaded. It’s a really well engineered coat.
