Womens Hudsons Bay point blanket coat

This vintage coat was made in the 1950s-1960s by the Hudson’s Bay Comapny from their iconic multi-stripe point blankets. This style was produced in the 1950s and 1960s and was joined by and later replaced by a double breasted design. This one has a modified shawl collar and high button stance. It has buttons for the rarely seen and rarely used button-on hood, which is not included with this jacket.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 31″

Gray Blanket stripe coat

This vintage jacket was made in the 1970s or 1980s. It closely follows the pattern of Hudson’s Bay point blanket jackets of the time, with its shirt style collar and buttoned patch pockets. However, I don’t believe the Hudson’s Bay Company ever produced their jackets in this period with a gray background. I have seen this pattern of fabric made by Woolrich and by Pendleton, so possibly it’s one of theirs.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 21″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 29″
