This vintage jacket was made in Canada and was sold by the Maritime Campus Store of Halifax, Nova Scotia. It has “Dalhousie University” on the back, a black and gold color scheme, a D patch on the front, with a Dalhousie crest and “science” patch. It has a black denim lining.
These vintage pants were made in Canada by Jones Tent & Awning Co under their Pioneer workwear label. They are made from a heavy, flecked wool with a pioneer branded snap closure and a Lightning zipper.
This was sold to me as being early 1930s, hand knit in British Columbia for a First Nations wedding. With the style of Lightning zipper stopbox it has, I don’t think I quite buy that provenance, but I will say it is an early one for the zip front cardigan style that would come to be so iconic in Canadian culture, most likely dating from the late 1940s.
This vintage shawl collar sweater was made in the 1940s in Stratford on Avon, Ontario, Canda from Ballantyne pure wool. The style is basically unchanged from the shawl collar cardigans popular in the US in the 1920s. Canadians continued producing this style after the trend had passed in the United States, and these were very popular with Curlers.
This vintage coat was made in Ontario, Canada in the 1920s- mid 1930s by Carss Mackinaw. It is made from a distinctive plaid, with caped shoulders, four flapped, buttoned patch pockets, a belted back and a rolled collar. As was typical of work mackinaws of this early period, this one is unlined.
