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.
