This is a vintage Foremost Penneys hunting jacket made from a durable wool shell that features a nylon quilt lining, a zip split hood plus a multitude of pockets for all your kit. The jacket also has a Coats Clark aluminium zipper which dates this jacket to circa 1940s / 50s. Made in the USA.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition considering its age with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout, in particular to the backs of the arms and cuffs through use. There are some small marks and discolouration to the lining hem area, the back neck hanger loop has split and there is a small hole to the hood lining. Not quite perfect but still many years of wear left. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
