This vintage deerskin jacket was made by the W.B. Place company of Hartford, Wisconsin. They were tanners- you sent them a deerskin, they tanned it and tailored it into a jacket or gloves. This jacket has a classic design for this kind of leather, very outdoorsy, with a western yoked front and back, contrast leather stitching and fringe. There are issues with the finish of the jacket, which seem more to do with the quality of the original tanning job than with wear. There is wear just above the cuffs, where the owner rolled the sleeves under to shorten them.Chest: 23″Shoulder to Shoulder: 19″Sleeve: 25″
