This vintage mackinaw coat was made by the Aero Brand from wool from the Wesco Wool Pullery of Ellensburg, Washington. The jacket is a double mackinaw, with caped shoulders and double sleeves. It is made of heavy red and black plaid wool, with a plaid lining. The label has a four engined prop plane logo, which appears to be an early 1950s model. The jacket has snapped pockets and an internal game pocket, accessible through snapped vertical flaps on the side seams. The snaps are figural, with the image of the Spirit of St. Louis.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled = 48″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 25″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 29″
