HI All,

I wanted to share a pic of my original 1930's civilian utility/work jackets. In this case, from a now rarely seen yet one time prolific vintage jacket maker. Currently, all part of my personal collection and a quick glimpse of things to come.

All were sourced over a the past couple of years. As it is my intention to begin doing a few versions of my own using this same makers jacket design over the course of this coming Summer.

You are looking at three separate model jackets from the four originals that I now own from this same vintage jacket maker. All are from various models and sized from 36 through 48. The earliest dates 1932 and the latest 1939.

The design for this particular jacket is quite comfortable. Beyond innovative for it's time and remains so today. Among the many interesting elements that these same jackets originally came equipped with include a highly functional half gusseted sleeve design.

In addition, this same jacket could have come equipped with slash hand warming pockets verses the patch pockets as seen equipped with my originals. Either lined or non lined. While all lined models came with an interior welted pocket. Also, seen done as early M/C type jackets.

For closure I've seen this same make jacket done as a button down or zipped. The earlier models zipped jackets came equipped with grommet type while the more modern and latest model run with this same pattern design from this same maker ended with the M-39 type Talon zipper at the on set of WW-2.

Since acquiring these jackets I have spent many weeks perfecting it's patterns. Done by doing both dissections & careful thorough detailed studies of all aspects. As the sleeve set up is quite complicated. Subsequently allowing me to correctly duplicate this design for all sizes from 36 through 52.

As with all of my builds nothing has been left to chance. So please look forward to me marketing this particular vintage maker's design jacket under SHEELEY BROS.


Cheers, Dave

Hi Steve,

This is going to be great jacket. It will be my most affordable jacket build and still retain lots of bells & whistles.

Cheers, Dave

Dave,
What's your price (more or less) for one of these beauties with slash hand warming pockets in horsehide?
