1940s Capps Clothes double breasted jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271880980299
This vintage suit jacket was made in the early 1940s by Capps Clothes (established 1838) and was sold by Jacoby’s Store for Men, Helena, Montana. Jacoby’s changed their name from Bossler’s in 1941, so with the 1939 union tag, the high cut, pre-bold look of the suit and the information about the original store, I would put this jacket’s original date of manufacture from 1941-1944.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16″
Sleeve (Shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 29-1/2″

1950s D-Pocket leather jacket biker cut

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400926403996
This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s, and was likely sold by Sears under the Fieldmaster label. This is distinguished as one of the earlier production Sears D-pockets by the small Talon zipper (before they switched to either larger Talons or Serval zips). This has a separate square bottomed patch pocket cigarette pocket, which was replaced by the late 1950s-early 1960s by a internal pocket with just the flap. The D-pocket is also a separate piece of leather, while on later manufactured versions (with either the Oakbrook or Leather Shop labels) the pocket was accomplished with stitching and a welt. This also has a tunneled belt loop through the kidney panel rather than the attached quarter belts of later versions. The earliest Sears branded D-Pockets were produced under contract by Buco in Detroit, Michigan, while later 1950s versions were produced in California. At some point, this jacket was used by a member of a biker gang, as evidenced by stitch marks left by the removal of a club insignia and top and bottom rockers. The Harley Davidson patch, which would have been added by the jacket’s owner, and which would not have been the property of the club, is still on the jacket’s kidney panel. With a chest measurement of 46″, this would fit a 42 if worn over a shirt, or roughly a 38-40 if worn over a denim jacket

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Waist (side to side): 18-1/2″ (doubled = 37″)
Shoulder to shoulder:19″
Length (base of collar to hem): 21″

1940s-1950s jeweled western belt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400926387820
This vintage belt was made in the late 1940s – early 1950s. It is made of black leather with a floral pattern, a western belt buckle with metal tip and loop, studs and red and green jewels. It is tagged a size 30, so it would probably work best for someone with a 28″ waist. Although difficult to read, it appears to be stamped that it was made in San Francisco.
