This vintage suit was made in the 1950s by H Bar C ranchwear. It is made of gray corded wool, with typical flashy western detailing: peak lapels, a three button front with leather buttons, a square cutaway, flapped patch pockets, scalloped pocket flaps, and bi-swing shoulders. The jacket’s cut is pure late ’40s early ’50s Bold Look, with exaggerated wide, padded shoulders and a nipped in waist. The pants have western pockets, fancy belt loops, a Conmar zipper, and pearl snapped back scalloped pockets.

This vintage leather shirt jacket was made in California by Los Angeles Sportogs. It is an unusual style, a western pearl-snap shirt, but instead of gabardine, it is made out of white leather, with hair-on cowhide trip on the yokes, pockets, and cuffs. I particularly like the broad arrow reinforcements at the edges of the “smile” pockets. The back of the shirt-jacket has an unusual cutaway. Snaps are United Carr / DOT snapper.
