http://www.ebay.com/itm/271738364402
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by Zero King Sports Apparel. It is tailored from a red and black point blanket, possibly Hudson’s Bay, but there are no mill tags on it. The jacket is single breasted, with a zipper front. The original zipper has been replaced with a vinyl YKK, which works well. The jacket has caped shoulders, similar to earlier Carss mackinaw detailing. It is partially lined.

Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 32″
