Skaggerac double breasted shawl collar leather mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272009334185
This vintage jacket was made in New York by Skaggerac Sportswear in the 1950s. It is a heavy double breasted, shawl collar sheeplined model. It is made of heavyweight steerhide with a black mouton collar, a square front yoke, scalloped back yoke. The grain on the leather is incredible. Though the tag dates it to the 1950s, the style, materials, style of lining with corduroy hem, etc. are all consistent with coats of this style made in the 1930s. This style of coat had gone out of fashion for the most part by WWII. It has a custom order handwritten size tag, reading a size 50. With a 58″ chest, it’s even generous for that size.

Chest (pit to pit): 29″ (doubled = 58″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 24″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 26″
Length (base of collar to hem): 33-1/2″

This vintage coat was made in the 1920s. It is a shawl collared mackinaw style, with a sheepskin collar. The coat is belted with an early style buttoned belt. It has handwarmer pockets on the chest and flapped cargo pockets on the hips. The coat is leather-lined in the body and sleeves for windproofing.

This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s by Campus sportswear. It is made of navy blue steerhide, with an attached belt and mouton collar.  It has a talon zipper with a lucky rabbits foot pull.  It has a green quilted liner, and is tagged a size 18- these jackets were targeted towards high school and college kids, hence the sizing.  Please go by the measurements. There is some wear to the leather, but no real damage.  I’ve attached a photo of this jacket next to a black leather jacket to give an idea of the color difference.Chest: 19-1/2″ (doubled = 39″)Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″    Photobucket
