This vintage jacket was likely made in Denver, Colorado in the 1950s. It is made of deerskin leather, and has all the unusual details which I have only found on Denver based custom makers, like the trapezoidal reinforcement stitching at the base of the bi-swing shoulders, the button front, the slightly narrower than typical belt to the half-belt back, the style of pleats to the back, the flapped patch pockets, the extra long cuffs, the seam in the lining at the belt-line. This one doesn’t have a label, but A.T. Hendrick is one of the Denver makers which also exhibit all the eccentricities of this pattern. I have had other jackets of theirs from the late 1930s and 1930s. This one feels a bit more refined, a bit later, but still has the distinctive detailing held over from the patterns of the 1930s, modified with a bit of extra length, an additional breast pocket, and tweaks to the collar.
