Toyo Grizzly repro jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401043302889

This jacket is a high end reproduction of the “Grizzly” style jacket, popular in the mid 1930s. It was made by Toyo Enterprises, who make jackets for Buzz Rickson, Sugar Cane and Style Eyes. Accurate down to the last detail, it bears a reproduction of a 1930s “Lakeland” hang tag. It has “Laskinlamb” mouton panels on the front and back, with a matching mouton collar. The sleeves and trim are horsehide leather. The idea of these jackets was to put the insulation on the outside so that the wearer could have an unobstructed range of motion. They were promoted heavily in an athletic context, promoted by football players, that sort of thing. This jacket is as near as you can get to walking into a store in 1935 and buying one. The main zip is a repro of a Hookless grommet zipper, and the throat latch has a repro dot snap. The original tags are still on the jacket and include a nice reproduction piece to accompany that zip. The front of the jacket is belted, as are the sleeves. There is a snap chinstrap to cinch it up at the neck. Inside, the body has a plaid lining, while the sleeves are lined in mustard twill. There are wool storm cuffs to keep the breeze from blowing up the sleeves.

Lakeland Shawl Collar sweater

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281344004202
This vintage sweater was made in the 1970s by Lakeland. The design is heavily influenced by the shawl collar sweaters of the 1920s and 1930s. It has a broad shawl collar, a four button front and four leather pockets, the design and placement of which are reminiscent of shawl collared mackinaw coats of the same period. The sweater is fully lined and has an interior pocket, in keeping with the original intention of these as an article of outerwear rather than something to be layered, as was the case with v necked cardigans.

Shawl collar Jeffrey Banks x Lakeland mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271370344153
This vintage coat was made by Lakeland. It is a 1920s- 1930s mackinaw style, with a shawl collar, buttoned patch pockets and a waist belt. This style was popularized in the 1910s by the Patrick mackinaw company of Duluth. They had a second boom in the 1920s-1930s as workwear, especially with railroad men. The simpler styling and navy blue wool of this one is more consistent with the 1920s-1930s ones.
It was designed by Jeffrey Banks in the late 1970s, and is a very good reproduction. Comparing it to originals in my collection from the era, it’s very close in terms of styling and cut. The interior of the coat is the real giveaway. While most of the originals were unlined, this has a luxurious quilted liner.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled = 48″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length: 32″

Jeffrey Banks / Lakeland blanket coat

 

This coat was made in the late 1970s by Lakeland, and was designed by Jeffrey Banks, in the early days of his career.  It is a classic double breasted peacoat/mackinaw style, made in red and black striped blanket material. The coat draws heavy influence from earlier decades and Lakeland products, like the 1947 “Jackinac”. The silhouette and material are straight out of the 1930s or 1940s, but updated with more modern luxuries like a quilted liner. The Lakeland x Jeffrey Banks line of the late 1970s and early 1980s was made up of these reproduction pieces, in the same way the current Ralph Lauren RRL line is today.  Another can be seen here: https://vintagehaberdashers.com/2013/12/16/jeffrey-banks-lakeland-shawl-collar-mackinaw/
