Browns Beach Jacket vest is a classic of vintage American workwear and is in amazing clean condition. Black label, attached vertically, reads Browns Beach Jacket Worcester, Mass. In black/white/gray herringbone cotton-wool fabric with steel-gray cotton twill binding. 4 pockets, high collar, longer in front than in back. No stated size, probably a Medium at the time of its production (NOTE: not equivalent to current sizing charts, its smaller than contemporary wear–please judge fit by the dimensions given and the photos). Dimensions: 12 ½ across shoulder, about 20.5–21 at widest (pit to pit). Collar to bottom front 21, collar to bottom back 18. Snaps are the early nipple type. An unusual feature is that the snap fronts are plain, not engraved. Not sure if this signifies a vest made for a specific market or whether its a feature of the earliest Beach vests, possibly pre-1930s. Excellent overall, ready to wear, front and back are clean and free of damage. Minor fraying at the collar near first snap, and visible wearing away of the inside edges along the snaps (see detail photos). A few stray threads hang from the bottom, a few lint bits on the inside fabric. A truly RARE BIRD for Browns Beach Jacket enthusiasts, and for anyone who appreciates the integrity and beauty of vintage American workwear! No ZERO feedback buyers.
