Overcoats

Winter’s coming, and there’s nothing quite like a bold plaid to brighten the mood on those cold snowy days.

A blanket cloth double breasted Mackinaw-style jacket from the 1930s or 1940s is a perfect addition to a vintage wardrobe, though good luck finding one! These were once very common, and typically made in this very heavy woolen cloth. Sear’s and other catalogues fro the 1930s and 40s always feature this kind of jacket for winter wear. The plaid on this one is an exceptionally loud example. Not just for kids, either – this one is very much adult sized. Features a fixed rear half-belt with pleats above, and a removable button-on belt with heavy metal buckle fastening. There are waist-level handwarmer pockets, and hip-level flapped pockets. The lapel buttons up for those very cold days. Beautiful original plaid brushed cotton liner.
