1940s Palm Beach Goodall Springweave jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271865336045
This vintage jacket was made by Goodall, creators of the famed Palm Beach Cloth from their Springweave fabric. Springweave was introduced in early 1944. Goodall changed their name and label to Goodall Sanford in late 1944, so this is a rare and precisely date-able piece of vintage. This was from the early formulation of Springweave fabric, which consisted of lightweight wool and mohair. It has a nice herringbone weave to the fabric, a two button cut, and patch pockets. The jacket was sold by the Stix, Baer and Fuller men’s store.

Size: 38
Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 30-1/2″

Cushman Japan reproduction wool half-belt jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281687597362
This jacket was made by high end Japanese manufacturer Cushman, inspired by a mid 1930s workwear jacket. It is made from gray and eggplant plaid wool, with a half-belt back, built in vest, handwarmer pockets, belted cuffs, breast pocket and zip front. The jacket has a Waldes main zipper with an early 1930s Talon influenced grommet stopbox. The pocket zipper has a ball and chain pull, again typical of mid 1930s jackets. The jacket is, as was typical of this style of 1930s jackets, unlined. The front panels have a sort of half-lining, from the same wool as the jacket, which folds forward into the attached vest. It has cat-eye buttons. The side adjuster belts have fancy metal buckles. The jacket has a black and yellow label reading, “Outerwear by Cushman, Smarter Styling – Longer Wear”, in addition to a keystone All Wool tag.

Chest (pit to pit): 22-1/2″ (doubled = 45″)
Sleeve (center of collar to end of cuff): 34″ (roughly equivalent to 18″ shoulders and 25″ sleeves)
Length (collar seam to hem): 25″
