A truly lovely jacket, this is modeled on a traditional British hacking jacket, with its twin vents, slanted hacking pockets, slanted (and fully functional) ticket pocket, and wonderful checking and colourway in a medley of bracken, moss green, and lichens!
It is half-canvassed and half-lined, and was Union made in the USA for Zachary Hall--a store founded in the 1950s and that became so famous in Los Angeles for its television commercials that they inspired Frank Zappa's song "Eddie are you kidding?" (Eddie was the owner of the store, and rhetorically asked himself that question on behalf of his friends owing to his low prices!)
This lovely jacket thus carries with it a small part of Los Angeles history. But, more than that, it's a lovely gem of a jacket that is ready to give you many years of tweedy Anglophilic service!
This has some minor wear to the lining, as shown, and could use a dry clean to freshen it up. It is thus in Very Good condition.
Asking just $39, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA
