1920s Red-Head Brand canvas hunting jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281511694000

This vintage canvas hunting jacket was made in the 1920s by Red Head Brand. It features the early variant of their makers label and of their buttons. The jacket is made of a double layer of canvas, with an internal game pocket (enclosed between the two layers instead of an open, rubberized lined pouch as was found on RedHead coats from the 1930s-on). There is access to the game pocket through internal slit pockets, similar to the access on a half-moon vest. The collar and cuffs are corduroy, and the shoulders have additional reinforcement. The hip cargo pockets are two separate U shaped pockets which share a flap. The breast pocket combines a watch pocket and a cigarette pocket, again under the same flap. There are grommet ventilated double underarm gussets for freedom of motion, and a throat latch hook and eye under the collar.

Shawl collar Jeffrey Banks x Lakeland mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271370344153
This vintage coat was made by Lakeland. It is a 1920s- 1930s mackinaw style, with a shawl collar, buttoned patch pockets and a waist belt. This style was popularized in the 1910s by the Patrick mackinaw company of Duluth. They had a second boom in the 1920s-1930s as workwear, especially with railroad men. The simpler styling and navy blue wool of this one is more consistent with the 1920s-1930s ones.
It was designed by Jeffrey Banks in the late 1970s, and is a very good reproduction. Comparing it to originals in my collection from the era, it’s very close in terms of styling and cut. The interior of the coat is the real giveaway. While most of the originals were unlined, this has a luxurious quilted liner.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled = 48″)

Waxed Cotton A-1 jacket

SOLD
This jacket was made by Ralph Lauren under the Polo equestrian label. It is a reproduction of a jacket style popular from c. 1919 through into the 1930s, which would be adapted by the military into the A-1 flight jacket. The original civilian model of this jacket was defined by its knit collar, cuffs and waistband, and patch pockets. The style was originally a hunting/outdoorsman’s style, and was generally, though not always, made of leather. This reproduction is made of water resistant waxed cotton / oiled cotton, a material appropriate for the style, as it also shares the hunting / outdoorsman’s garment lineage. This jacket has two large patch cargo pockets, and a small functional ticket pocket. The jacket is lined with tartan flannel. Unlike many Ralph Lauren products, this jacket, made under the leather Polo Equestrian label was made in the USA,
