1960s flat toe Whites boots

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401069102026

These boots were bought in the 1960s for a driller with the Anaconda Mining Company of Montana.  They are a size 14AA, have a soft toe and measure 13-1/4″ by 4-3/4″, and 9-1/2″ bottom of the sole to top of the shaft. Though the owner’s daughter in law referred to them as Whites, and the pattern is identical to Whites of that period, there are no longer any visible brand markings on these.

The Globe union suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/272114877643

This vintage union suit was made by The Globe.  It is an unusual style, with a horizontal trap door in back and a double breasted closure with collar and mother of pearl buttons. With that collar, I’m unclear whether this was meant to be worn with a shirt or as a shirt.
Tagged size: 36
Pit to pit:  19″ (doubled = 38″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 22″

1910s / 1920s Filson canvas jacket

This vintage jacket was made by the C.C. Filson company of Seattle, Washington in the 1910s or early 1920s. It is in remarkably good condition- the best I’ve seen. The label bears their early 1011 First Avenue address. By 1924, Filson had re-located down the block to 1005 First Ave, then again in 1930 to 1001 2nd ave, updating their label accordingly each move. This conclusively dates from the 1910s or early 1920s. The label is of the early style, reading, “C.C. Filson Co / 1011 1st Ave / Seattle Wash / Manufacturers / Complete Outfitters / For Miners, Prospectors, Lumbermen”. At this time, Seattle was still the jumping-off-point for Alaska, and Filson advertised themselves as a “Complete Alaska Outfitter”. Later on, the “Might As Well Have The Best” slogan would come into usage.

The jacket is a heavy dry tin-cloth canvas. It has half-moon pockets on the front, leading to an internal unlined game-bag. Flaps on the back lead to this pocket as well. This creates a double thickness of high quality canvas throughout the coat, making for a durable garment. The collar is corduroy, and has a matching corduroy throat latch / chin strap. The shoulders are reinforced against wear when carrying loads. The hip pockets are of the early double-round style, and share a common pocket flap. The main breast pocket is similarly enormous, with a more regularly sized pocket overtop. The underarms have football gussets for a greater range of motion. The cuffs are lined with wool, and close with United Carr snaps. The snaps, both on the cuffs and the breast pocket, are of the early printed type, and still are very clear.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 17-1/2″
Sleeve (Shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length: 29″
