1950s blanket stripe Ario’s Western jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281601270188
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s for Ario’s of Great Falls, Montana (serving the stockman since 1897). Ario’s was founded by Victor Ario as a saddlery, and developed into a full outfitter. Ario’s son, who took over the business, retired in 1957 and the company became the H Bar O saddlery. From the styling of this jacket, I would put it in the mid 1950s timeframe. It has the typical styling of a western jacket, heavy weight fabric, peak lapels, bi-swing shoulders and a square bottom. This one is made of striped blanket material. The pattern is similar to Pendleton’s Glacier National Park blanket or a Hudson’s Bay point blanket, though the stripes are out of order from the arrangement found on those mills, so I’m not positive what company produced the fabric. The yoke work is some of the most detailed I’ve seen, with sharp cutaways, and is mirrored on the design of the pocket flaps. The jacket is fully lined, and has a model tag reading, Montana.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 29-1/2″
