This jacket was made in Japan by WareHouse. The design is inspired by 1920s chore jackets, with an indigo discharge pattern twill fabric, ring-back buttons reading “Union Made”, and a four button front with a pencil pocket in one of the breast pockets.
This vintage notepad was made as an advertising piece in 1952 for Fincks Red Bar Work Garments of Zanesville, Ohio.
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s. It is double breasted, with a 4×6 closure, half lining and Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America 1949 union label. Unfortunately the original owner removed the label in this jacket, along with all the labels in all his clothes, some of which I also have listed. The fabric is lightweight with a certain rough quality reminiscent of Palm Beach cloth.

This vintage jacket was union made in Seattle Washington by the C.C. Filson Company. It is made of black and white buffalo plaid in their classic cruiser pattern. It has four main pockets, with side access to the game pouch, and two sub-pockets, one slotted and the other for a watch or cigarettes. The coat is double layered wool for the game pouch. This jacket features the early style diamond label, and early style United Carr snaps, with the printed “C.C. Filson Co Manufacturers Seattle” design, before they switched over to the later metal topped version with their name cast in. The cuffs have at some point been reinforced or lengthened with black leather, and there is a patch on the sleeve.

This vintage overcoat was made in the 1930s-early 1940s by John David of New York. It is double breasted with a 3×6 buttoning and a belted back. The coat is fully lined. It has an Amalgamated Clothing workers of America label, but the way it is stitched, I can’t tell if it is a 1936 or 1939 variant. The styling of the coat points to a pre-war date of manufacture. This is an extremely heavy overcoat.
