This vintage jacket was made in Japan in the 1970s for the F.W. Woolworth Co. of New York. Made from brown corduroy, the style is based upon early sporting norfolk jackets. All the belts are sewn down. Tagged a 40, with a 42″ chest, this best fits a 38.
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 jacket was made in Japan by WareHouse. The design is inspired by 1920s chore jackets, with an indigo discharge pattern twill fabric, ring-back buttons reading “Union Made”, and a four button front with a pencil pocket in one of the breast pockets.
This jacket was a sample made in Japan by John Lofgren & Co., one of two made for a jacket which never went into production. Based on chore jackets from the 1920s, it is made from 11 oz indigo selvedge denim, with a chinstrap, changeable ring buttons with an incredible “Cock O’ the Walk” logo, and a nicely detailed watch pocket with a slanted buttonhole for a watch chain.
This vintage money belt was made in the 1950s. These were popular with US servicemen for keeping money and other personal objects safe. This one was used by a L.O. Lemon, and has a Japanese bell shaped zipper which takes stylistic cues from pre-war Talon zippers.
