STYLE: WORKWEAR / MECHANIC’S WEAR. ERA OR ESTIMATED AGE: 1930’S TO 1940’S, BUT EXACT AGE UNDETERMINED. DETAILS & DESCRIPTION: (SEE PHOTOS AS WELL). A RARE FIND, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE A SINGLE PICTURE ONLINE OF A SIMILAR JACKET. I DO NOT KNOW ITS ACTUAL WORTH. I’VE HAD SEVERAL OFFERS, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO JUST PUT THIS OUT THERE ONLINE. FOR A SHORT TIME AND SEE WHAT KIND OF INTEREST, IF ANY, THIS ITEM SPARKS. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. AFTER WEEKS OF RESEARCH, THIS IS WHAT I KNOW. AT SOME POINT THIS JACKET BELONGED TO A SERVICE MANAGER NAMED LEO AT A HUDSON MOTOR COMPANY DEALERSHIP. LOCATION CITY & STATE UNKNOWN. THE NAME & TITLE OF THE PREVIOUS OWNER WAS DISCOVERED BY PHOTOGRAPHING THE. LEFT SIDE OF THE CHEST IN NEGATIVE EFFECT. THIS REVEALED THE OUTLINE OF STITCHING “LEO” AND THE SERVICE MANAGER PATCH THAT WAS ONCE LOCATED THERE. CONDITION: (SEE PHOTOS AS WELL). I HAVE NOT ALTERED OR CLEANED IT. I’VE KEPT IT IN PLASTIC EXCEPT WHEN PHOTOGRAPHING AND MEASURING IT FOR THIS LISTING. IT IS IN VERY GOOD VINTAGE CONDITION, WITH ALL THE STAINS AND SMALL HOLES TO BE EXPECTED FROM A VERY OLD. MECHANIC’S JACKET THAT WAS WORN WHILE WORKING ON OR SERVICING CARS. ACTUALLY, IT’S IN BETTER CONDITION THAN EXPECTED UNDER THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES. FABRIC & CARE: COTTON OR CHAMBRAY. CARE OR PRESERVATION TO BE DETERMINED BY COLLECTOR WHO BUYS IT. CHEST IS ABOUT 21 ACROSS. FRONT LENGTH ABOUT 45 FROM TOP OF RIGHT SHOULDER TO FRONT HEM. SHOULDERS 17.5 FROM ONE SHOULDER/SLEEVE SEAM TO THE OTHER ACROSS THE BACK. SLEEVES ARE EACH ABOUT 22. Questions are welcomed & will be answered promptly. Vintage Item Conditions Defined. Very few items will be in mint (meaning “brand new” or like new) condition. Vintage clothing will be more fragile than new clothing, and should be worn & laundered with care. There are exceptions to every rule, so I try to evaluate condition on a item-by-item basis. It should also be noted that the sizes vintage clothing may not be consistent with the sizes of clothing today. Provided in the listing with a similar item of clothing you own & fits well. MINT – No problems, as close to “new” as possible for its age. Likely never worn or used. EXCELLENT – Shows normal wear expected for age, but nothing easily visible. GREAT/VERY GOOD – Shows normal wear expected for age with some minor problems visible a light stain or repaired seam. GOOD – Has some obvious visual problems. Problems could be fixed. These items will be available at reduced prices. Distressed- Shows wear, age and/or minor flaws that adds to the character or enhances the style & appeal of the item. This term can apply to a brand new, pre-owned or vintage item. FAIR – These items will be available at discounted rates. And if you are creative and up for a project, these are still interesting pieces. ALL CLOTHING IS MEASURED FLAT, IN INCHES, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED.
