Woolrich Red Plaid 1950s Vintage Jacket, size 46
Iconic red plaid Woolrich hunting jacket dating from the late 40s/50s. The exterior is in excellent vintage condition. The canvas duck lining has been patched several times- quite neatly and nicely- and it could use another patch now on the right shoulder- the lining is starting to separate. The jacket is perfectly wearable as it is and I’ll leave it up to the new owner to decide if and when they want to do this repair.
Helpful tip: If you are looking for a vintage Woolrich jacket, don’t spend any of your money until you have checked and dated the label. I often see jackets from the late 50s and 1960s that are presented for sale as ‘authentic 1930s’ or ‘vintage 1940s’… It only takes 5 or 10 minutes to learn how to accurately date a vintage Woolrich jacket based on the label. There are several online guides that will teach you all you need to know.
