This vintage jacket was made by H.W. Carter & Sons of Lebanon, New Hampshire in the mid 1930s. It is made of heavy red and black point blanket material, in a single breasted mackinaw style. Unusual for a point blanket coat, this example has a game pocket, which does up with two early Hookless-style Talon zippers. The coat has a zipper hood which snaps down into a collar. The hood zips open and closed with a Talon zipper, the design of which dates this jacket to c.1937. The coat bears a United Garment Workers of America union label, as well as a black and yellow tag identifying the material as water repellent and all wool. The jacket is fully lined in mustard colored cotton, similar to what Woolrich was using on their hunting coats in this period, especially in its use of a single patch breast pocket. The mackinaw has snap closure cargo pockets as well as handwarmers.

This jacket was sold by Eddie Bauer. It is made from Indian Blanket style wool fabric- from the texture and particular pattern, I would guess made by the Woolrich Woolen Mills. The jacket has a leather collar and corozo buttons. It is fully lined. Despite being labeled a size Medium, with a 54″ chest, this would best fit someone who wears a size 48 jacket.
