This jacket was made for Ralph Lauren, with a design based on 1910s-1920s hunting coats. It has leather trimmed pockets, with leather belts on the large cargo pockets. It has a flap on small bellows pockets, which on an original coat would be for shotgun shells, but which have been enlarged for street usage on this coat. The pocket overlapping the center button operates like a flight suit or motorcycle jacket map pocket, rather than opening to an internal game pouch like an original. This has not one, but two internal game pouches, one in between the outer shell and inner lining, like coats of the 1910s, and one with an open top and hook closure between the lining and the wearer, like on coats made in the 1930s and on.
This vintage Ralph Lauren jacket is made from brown corduroy, with double flapped breast pockets, a throat latch, and a pleated belt back. It is unlined, with taped seams and was made in the USA. There are 3-1/2″ of material in the cuff and it appears they have been previously shortened.

This jacket was made in Italy for Ralph Lauren around 2007 and was sold under the Polo label. It is white with a slubby corded texture, pleated patch pockets and a belted back. It is half-lined, like the original 1930s jackets it is based on. While tagged a size 44, I’ve had a couple of these jackets over the years, and they’ve all run small. With a 44″ chest measurement, this best fits someone who wears a size 40.
