Archival Find – Hunting World Jacket

Superwax Forester Jacket in Hunting World catalog

Tom’s report: I love thrifting because there’s no common denominator of quality like you see at fancy vintage stores or high end (and high priced) flea markets. Usually when I go through the outerwear at the thrift stores in Eugene, it’s just a fuzzy cake of cheap polar fleece. But when I was in town last month, a sliver of hunter green caught my eye between the day-glo layers, and I pulled out a immaculate condition Hunting World jacket.

Though the jacket looks waxy, it’s actually made with a 60/40 fabric treated with a polyamid finish.

Both collar and cuffs are lined in best quality corduroy.

Raglan sleeve construction – ostensibly for freedom of movement in the field.

Deep bellows pockets. Not wild about the velcro, although I admit to liking the elastic gathering.

Heavy duty, two way YKK zipper.

Partial wool lining with internal drip strip (ala Barbour Bedale).

If you like this jacket here’s your chance to bid on a size medium Forester via ebay. And what a price!

  1. Hehe, this looks like a great jacket. It would have been great for my dad. Too bad the bidding ended. Well, maybe some other time.

    Btw, what was the price? 😀
