Early’s Witney Point blanket mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271627237074
This vintage coat was made in the late 1940s. The makers label, which appears to have been originally located above the Milium label, is unfortunately missing. The coat is made of English made Early’s Witney Point blanket material, heavier and thicker than those of the Hudson’s Bay Company in this period. The coat is the classic point blanket mackinaw pattern and cut, in red with black stripes. It is double breasted and belted, with handwarmers and cargo pockets. The coat is fully lined with Milium insulation.

Gray Blanket stripe coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281262510170
This vintage jacket was made in the 1970s or 1980s. It closely follows the pattern of Hudson’s Bay point blanket jackets of the time, with its shirt style collar and buttoned patch pockets. However, I don’t believe the Hudson’s Bay Company ever produced their jackets in this period with a gray background. I have seen this pattern of fabric made by Woolrich and by Pendleton, so possibly it’s one of theirs.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 21″
