1930s Shawl Collar railroad mackinaw coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281560066554
This vintage coat is a 1930s railroad mackinaw. It is double breasted, with a shawl collar, belted back, handwarmer pockets and cargo pockets. Because this is a workwear coat, subject to abuse, this style had additional leather reinforcement at the pockets, sleeve bottom and cuffs. As was typical of these early production mackinaw coats, this one is unlined, with taped seams. While the shawl collar mackinaw style goes back to the 1910s, the leather reinforced railroad version didn’t gain popularity until the 1920s. By the early 1940s, production was waning, though old coats of this style continued to be be worn for years, a testament to their durability and warmth.

Chest (pit to pit): 26-1/2″ (doubled = 53″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 22-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 36″

1940s Belt back double breasted mackinaw

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271391492640

This vintage mackinaw coat was made in the mid to late 1940s. Going by the style and the lining, it’s likely that it was sold by Sears under the Hercules label. Whereas most plaid jackets were made for the hunting market, this one is of the type marketed in the 1940s as workwear. It has a double breasted front, handwarmer pockets on the chest and large flapped pockets on the hips. The large zipped pocket on the right side is a nice and rarely seen detail. It does up with a bell shaped Talon zipper, which helps with the dating. This has a half-belt back. The coat has a blue plaid lining

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 21″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length: 29″
