This vintage leather jacket was made in Sweden for their army. These were used by motorcycle despach riders and tank crews. They were made in leather and green canvas versions, this is the simplified of the leather version, with the snap closure at the waist and collar rather than the more complicated hook closure. Made from heavy black leather, it has epaulettes, an asymmetrical closure, band collar, handwarmer pockets, belted adjusters at the cuffs and a large map pocket in the center of the chest. The jacket is blanket lined, with an internal snapped wind flap. The original changeable ring-back buttons have been either switched out or modified to be wired onto backing plates. These coats were cut oversized, with broad shoulders and long sleeves. Someone has added shoulder pads inside, which square up the broad shoulders. They are easily removed.
This vintage coat was made by the A&N Trading Co of 8th and D St. NW Washington DC in the 1930s, either for the Army or the Civilian Conservation Corps. It is the rare early variant of the army shawl collar mackinaw, made from OD wool, with a double breasted closure, belted waist, and epaulettes. In keeping with the early pattern, and typical of work mackinaws of this period, the coat is unlined.
This vintage parka was made in the 1950s. It is nearly identical to a B-9 parka, but with a civilian “Parka” label instead of the military contract label. Somewhat unusually, it has French made Emar zippers.
