This vintage mackinaw was made in the 1930s. It is made of plaid wool, is double breasted, and has a pleated, belted back. The coat is lined in plaid flannel. It is missing half the buttons, with the other half having been moved to make the coat larger. These coats were popular as workwear and this example is heavily worn.
