This is a very rare blanket lined denim chore jacket from Powr House (this was a brand sold exclusively at Montgomery Ward). The jacket is from the 1950's and has hand mended details throughout. A great collectors piece!
This workwear jacket has been hand mended to create a beautiful and unique one of a kind look. The jacket is a Light Blue shade with nice fades that only years of wear can achieve. The jacket has 3 pockets on the outside of the garment (the fourth has worn away leaving a great contrast of what the indigo originally looked like) and one pocket on the inside. The blanket lining is striped with red, green, and white.
There are rust marks on the garments from the oxidation of the buttons over the years and the two top buttons have been replaced with sew on buttons.
Be sure to look at the pictures as I can not list all the mending details on the garment, I tried to illustrate them as best as I could in the pictures. Some of the mending on this jacket was done by hand using multiple colors of thread and some was done by machine. My favorite mending on this jacket is at the lower patch pocket, where the holes have been patched with an indigo striped fabric from behind. There are many imperfections throughout the garment, this is what makes it so special.
DISCLAIMER: This jacket has mending and staining throughout that gives it a great vintage look. The jacket is 100% wearable, however, if you are looking for something that looks new, this jacket is not for you.
MADE IN THE U.S.A.
• Please note that all vintage items have slight imperfections. These imperfections are what give each piece it's unique one of a kind look. I try to accurately describe every item and point out any markings it may have, although some things may slip by. Do not look at these things as faults, but instead look at them as the history of the garment and the story of its life before joining yours. Enjoy!
