Chippewa hunting jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272050075857

This vintage jacket was made in the 1930s by the Chippewa Woolen Mills of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin from 100% wool.  The red and black plaid wool is more of a shirt jacket weight rather than the more common super heavy mackinaw wool you generally see in this cut.  This one’s perfect for layering. It has patch pockets, a plain back, is unlined, and has an interesting Talon zipper, with a sunburst slider and stopbox, placing the date around 1937-38.

Chest (pit to pit): 24-1/2″ (doubled = 49″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 26″
