Seattle local – BLACKBEAR

This is the BLACKBEAR jacket I was talking about……..c.1910~20s.

Most of the examples I’ve seen in person or in photos had snap closure cuffs,  but this example has regular button closure.

This is the famous (?) “crooked” chest pocket for pocket watch…… up to my knowledge,  this type of  design was used  by only two manufacturers ….BLACKBEAR and SWEET-ORR……for some reason.

These jackets got some  “to-die-for”  details and magic textures which you don’t see everyday…..

And I am sure Mr. Ford agrees….
