This vintage jacket was made in the 1930s, and was sold by the J.C. Penney Company under their Sportclad label. It is made of red and black plaid wool mackinaw fabric with flapped cargo pockets, handwarmer pockets, a zipped rear entry to the internal game pocket, and leather reinforcement at the corners of these pockets. The zippers are early Talon, with bell-shaped pullers. The deco lines on the pull of the zipper put the date of manufacture around 1937. The jacket is fully lined, and has a trimmed throat latch.
