1940s Palm Beach Goodall Springweave jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271865336045
This vintage jacket was made by Goodall, creators of the famed Palm Beach Cloth from their Springweave fabric. Springweave was introduced in early 1944. Goodall changed their name and label to Goodall Sanford in late 1944, so this is a rare and precisely date-able piece of vintage. This was from the early formulation of Springweave fabric, which consisted of lightweight wool and mohair. It has a nice herringbone weave to the fabric, a two button cut, and patch pockets. The jacket was sold by the Stix, Baer and Fuller men’s store.
