This vintage coat was made in the 1930s for Montgomery Ward under their Windward label. It is made from brown canvas, with a dark brown mouton collar. The coat has donut style buttons on the throat latch, loop closure on the front, handwarmer pockets and cargo pockets. This work coat was clearly used for its designed purpose, and one of the cargo pockets still has a handful of vintage nails in it. The coat has a sheepskin lining in the body and a blanket lining in the sleeves.

This vintage sheeplined coat was made in the early 1930s and was sold by the JC Penney Co. It has a nice early Penney’s label. It has a green cotton shell, with leather reinforced handwarmer and cargo pockets. As is typical of the style, it has loops instead of buttonholes. The coat is lined with sheepskin and has a sheepskin collar. Sleeves are blanket lined and there are knit storm cuffs. It appears that the sleeves were shortened at some point, exposing these cuffs.
