In the 1950s a Horsehide jacket was a practical garment, mainly worn by blue collar workers employed in transportation, freight-related industries and other hands on manual trades. Most of these workers were union members, affiliated to a Teamster Local so the name "Teamster" seemed ideal for this typical 1950s working man's button closing jacket which has been designed for the great outdoors with extra length for warmth and practicality.
Features include five buttons to close the jacket from the hem to the neck when the weather determines, a bi-swing back for ease of movement over a stitched on half belt, two hand warmer side pockets with heavy cotton linings, adjustable straps at the waist and typical American style button cuffs. The standard body lining is Lochcarron Tartan Wool, while the sleeves are lined in durable cotton drill with a button fastening cuff for extra winter warmth.
Standard size range is 34" to 48" inclusive, other sizes are available by special order
