This vintage jacket was made in the 1960s-early 1970s and was worn by a rancher in Livingston, Montana. It is made from heavy roughout leather, with a sherpa lining. The pockets have had matching leather sewn overtop.
This vintage coat was made in the 1950s for Sears Roebuck and Co under their Fieldmaster outerwear label. The coat is made of cotton canvas, with a 3/4 sheepskin lining, brown mouton collar, full belt and quilted sleeve linings. It has leather reinforcements at the corners of the handwarmer and flapped hip pockets, and loop closure for the buttons.

This vintage shawl collar mackinaw was made under Montgomery Ward’s workwear label, Powr-House. This style was popular from the 1930s-1950s and the style remained basically unchanged during that time. It has a cotton shell, with a mouton collar and sheepskin lining. There are leather reinforcements at the corners of the pockets, and a throat latch under the shawl collar. The label and the quilted material in the sleeves make me think this is probably a ’50s version of the coat- earlier ones, while nearly identical on the exterior, would likely have had blanket wool linings in the sleeves. There is some light colored staining to the mouton collar, and at the bottom of the coat, some light colored staining, which cleaning has not been able to remove. The coat is labeled in the pocket as a size 42.

This vintage shawl collar mackinaw was made by sears. While it was made around 1970, the style remained unchanged since the 1910s save for material. In the early models, they were generally wool, by the 1930s and 1940s, many were canvas with sheepskin linings and collars. This example replaces that sheepskin with acrylic pile, and the canvas shell with corduroy, but the idea is the same. This coat has four main front patch pockets. Two have smaller cigarette pockets on them, which close with Talon zippers. There is a loop for closing the collar when it is turned up. The coat still has all of its original tags and has never been worn.
