This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by Key Imperial. It is made from denim with a half-belt back and bi-swing shoulders. It would have originally had a zipper front, but at some point the zipper was replaced with buttons with hand stitched buttonholes. The jacket has a blanket lining and has had the cuffs patched with a lighter denim.
