1920s Duxbak hunting vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281549213801
This vintage vest was made in the 1920 by Duxbak in Utica, New York. While it is missing its label, the cut, the construction of the closed bottom shotgun shell loops and the type of buckle used are all unique to Duxbak and makes it easy to identify. The buckle used on the back bears the patent number “819180”, which shows that this buckle design dates from 1906.
The DuxBak line was started in 1906 by Bird, Jones and Kenyon, and had a factory located at 1 Blandina St., Utica, NY. Prior to the 1920s, Duxbak used the slogan “Duxbak Sportsman’s Clothing” in their advertisements and on their tags. During the 1920s, they switched to ” Duxbak Rain Proof Sportsman’s Clothing”. By the 1930s, they had changed their label to include a graphic of a hunter, and to emphasize “Utica”.

1920s Duxbak hunting coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271482181910
This vintage canvas hunting jacket was made in the 1920s by Duxbak. It is their early style of hunting coat, introduced in the first decade of the 20th century, with double hip pockets, and a double breast pocket. For both, the double pockets share a single flap. This jacket has the early version of what would later become the “half-moon” pocket, a pass through on the front of the coat to the interior game pocket. The jacket is a double thickness. The pockets have been lined/patched with selvedge salt and pepper cotton. Underarms are double-panel gusseted and have ventilation grommets. There is a calendar in the pocket dated 1939, presumably the last time this coat was worn in earnest. With the amount of wear put on it, its safe to say it dates from some time before that. The style of label and style of the coat confirm a 1920s date of manufacture.
