This vintage mackinaw coat was made in the early 1950s for Montgomery Ward and was sold under their Windward Outdoor Clothing label. It is made of red, black and gray plaid mackinaw cloth, with a half-belt back and button on front belt. It bears a 1949 Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America union label, and a Windward label before the inclusion of the (R) symbol, which, combined with the quilted lining and subtle details, put the dating solidly in the early 1950s. The overall style of the coat from the outside is nearly unchanged from its first wave of popularity around 1935.

This vintage leather jacket was made in the 1950s. It was sold by Montgomery Ward under their “Windward” line. Stylistically, it is about halfway in between an A-2 style flight jacket and a utility jacket. It has flapped pockets with side entry handwarmers, and epaulettes. It has a one piece back, with a leather hem and cuffs. The cuffs have decorative buttons at the ends. One is missing on the left sleeve. The jacket originally had a Conmar zipper. The puller is missing and the track is missing teeth, so it will definitely need to be replaced. There are elasticized side panels to provide a sung fit. The lining is qulited, and there are knit storm cuffs in the sleeves.
Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (bottom of collar to hem): 23″
