1930s Allen Stockman suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400949877547
This vintage suit was made in the 1930s in Denver Colorado by Allen Brand, maker of stockman’s garments. It is made of heavyweight mackinaw wool, with a waist length jacket. The jacket is button front, with a double button waistband and buttoned side adjusters. The pants are flat front, button fly, cuffless, and have western style belt loops. As was typical in this era of workwear and outerwear made from materials like this, the jacket and pants are unlined. The jacket has a honorable discharge “ruptured duck” pin in one lapel and an American Legion pin in the other. When I bought this suit, I was told that it was worn home after WWII by its original owner, and stored unworn since 1946.

1950s blanket stripe Ario’s Western jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281601270188
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s for Ario’s of Great Falls, Montana (serving the stockman since 1897). Ario’s was founded by Victor Ario as a saddlery, and developed into a full outfitter. Ario’s son, who took over the business, retired in 1957 and the company became the H Bar O saddlery. From the styling of this jacket, I would put it in the mid 1950s timeframe. It has the typical styling of a western jacket, heavy weight fabric, peak lapels, bi-swing shoulders and a square bottom. This one is made of striped blanket material. The pattern is similar to Pendleton’s Glacier National Park blanket or a Hudson’s Bay point blanket, though the stripes are out of order from the arrangement found on those mills, so I’m not positive what company produced the fabric. The yoke work is some of the most detailed I’ve seen, with sharp cutaways, and is mirrored on the design of the pocket flaps. The jacket is fully lined, and has a model tag reading, Montana.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 29-1/2″
