This vintage denim jacket was made by Levi Strauss in the 1930s. Based on the one sided big E red tab, the silver prong type buckle on the buckle back, and the other details, this is the 1936 revision of the design.
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by Key Imperial. It is made from denim with a half-belt back and bi-swing shoulders. It would have originally had a zipper front, but at some point the zipper was replaced with buttons with hand stitched buttonholes. The jacket has a blanket lining and has had the cuffs patched with a lighter denim.
This shirt was made in Japan by the Real McCoys under their Joe McCoy label. I’ve owned this one since 2008, and it was a few years old at that point, so long since out of production, and I have yet to see another of this model come up in that time. It’s made from denim, based on a 1950s western shirt, with a label based on a ’50s longhorn Levis label. It has a lace up front, with dot pearl snaps, asymmetrical western pockets and a repro union label.
This vintage eight panel work cap was made from denim, with unlined construction, taped seams and a brim with concentric stitching for rigidity. With an absence of a snap on the brim, and a plastic rivet to the center inside, I’m leaning toward a date of manufacture in the 1960s, though the proportions and small button on top give it a very passable ’30s look. The cap best fits between a 7-1/8 and 7-1/4.
