It has a shawl collar, flecked cotton material, with snaps which reference the early printed designs found on Filson fasteners and buttons based on early Duxbak designs. Really covering all the early outdoorsman influences
This was sold to me as being early 1930s, hand knit in British Columbia for a First Nations wedding. With the style of Lightning zipper stopbox it has, I don’t think I quite buy that provenance, but I will say it is an early one for the zip front cardigan style that would come to be so iconic in Canadian culture, most likely dating from the late 1940s.
This vintage jacket was made by Ralph Lauren under the Polo label, with a style based on 1920s sporting jackets. It has a shawl collar with a double button closure at the top, small patch pockets and a waistband made from the same material as the body of the coat. It is made from a blue plaid wool.
