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″

1942 Officer’s short overcoat mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271870719570
This vintage mackinaw was made to 1942 specifications, and was probably made in 1943. The official term was, Overcoat, Wool, Doeskin O.D. Officers Short Style. This was a successor to the shawl collar overcoats issued from the 1920s-early 1940s. I have one of those in a separate listing. The coat is double breasted, with flapped cargo pockets and epaulettes. It is fully lined.
