This mackinaw coat was made recently, with a design taken from work mackinaws of the 1930s, with a belted, pleated back, handwarmer pockets, a double breasted front and flapped cargo pockets. It is made from lighter weight, softer material than the originals and is lined.
This jacket was made recently by Eddie Bauer, drawing influence from 1930s work jackets (the overall cut, belt back, throat latch, unlined construction) and from Air Force Nomex flight jackets (the pocket design, style of zipper). It makes for a very rugged, outdoorsy lightweight jacket with a great vintage feel to it.
This vintage hunting jacket was made by the Woolrich Woolen Mills in the mid-late 1940s. It has their wartime style pre (R) label, with the Woolrich branded snaps and asymmetrical breast pockets, helping to narrow down the dating to around 1946-48.
This jacket was made in the USA by Avirex Ltd. based upon the 1940s M-421a cotton flight jacket. It has the distinctive diamond shaped reinforcements on the sleeves, belt back and patch pockets. The unbranded bell shaped zipper is a decent approximation of the original, which wouldn’t be fully reproduced for years after the production run of this jacket. The jacket is, like the original, unlined, with an inside pocket.
