http://www.ebay.com/itm/271500215997

This jacket was made recently by 3 Days Union / WorkWare in the style of a 1920s-1930s wabash stripe railroad chore jacket. It has an angled watch pocket and corresponding slanted buttonhole for your watch chain (shirt, watch and chain not included in auction). The breast pocket has an interior pocket behind it. The WorkWare label plays off the typographic design used on old Montgomery Ward products. The jacket has “union made” text buttons and a repro of the now defunct United Garment Workers of America label. There is a double button system at the collar to allow for adjustment. With a chest measurement of 41″, this would best fit someone who wears a size 36 or 38 jacket.
