This vintage coat was made in the 1930s for Montgomery Ward under their Windward label.  It is made from brown canvas, with a dark brown mouton collar.  The coat has donut style buttons on the throat latch, loop closure on the front, handwarmer pockets and cargo pockets. This work coat was clearly used for its designed purpose, and one of the cargo pockets still has a handful of vintage nails in it. The coat has a sheepskin lining in the body and a blanket lining in the sleeves.
