The Great Western Garment Company (GWG) was a Canadian denim and western wear clothing company founded in 1911 in Edmonton, Alberta, USA for heavy and intensive labour. The company's slogan was "They wear longer because they're made stronger".
This is a Vintage GWG stonewash Dark Blue Cotton Denim Jacket, with a great washed well worn look. The branded patch label dates this to circa 1970s / 80s.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout. Freshly laundered and ready for its new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, 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.
