This coat was made by Ralph Lauren under the Polo label. This one was made in the USA and probably dates to the 1980s. The style is based on a short lived variant on the work mackinaw, popular very briefly in the late 1930s, with a zip front, handwarmer pockets and flapped cargo pockets, a belted back and a zipped split hood. In keeping with the origins, this one is made with unlined construction.

This jacket was made in Italy for Ralph Lauren around 2007 and was sold under the Polo label. It is white with a slubby corded texture, pleated patch pockets and a belted back.
