1930s shawl collar mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400992626546
This vintage coat was made by the Fechheimer Bros Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. It bears a 1930s United Garment Workers of America union label in the rare small size. I’ve had a number of these shawl collar mackinaws, and from maker to maker there were a number of subtle variations from the stock pattern. This one is truly special, with unique pointed, buttoned patch pockets, epaulettes of an unusual design, and a high button stance. Typical for the 1930s production of these coats, commonly worn as fall/ winter workwear by members of the Civilian Conservation Corps, this one is unlined with finished seams.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 34″

1930s m1926 army mackinaw coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281272498743
This vintage mackinaw was made in the 1930s for the US Army. This coat is lined with Earl-Glo rayon, a material which hit the market in 1927. This label is consistent with the ones used by Earl-Glo in the early 1930s. These pre-war mackinaws are much rarer than their WWII issued counterparts, and were worn as part of the work uniform by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The coat is unlined, a defining feature of the pre-war pattern. This is also typical of the civilian work mackinaws from which this design descended. The small lining panel at the collar and the seam tape is made of the aforementioned Earl-Glo rayon. The coat is double breasted, with a shawl collar. It has a buttoned belt and buttoned adjuster tabs on the sleeves.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (base of collar to hem): 32″
