Mighty-Mac...







Perhaps? I recently copped for this vintage sailing jacket, real preps at sea vibes.
Dating from the 70's it's pretty cool, reversible too. One side is like a hooded coaches jacket in cream, the reverse a bright orange anorak with scoop button-down collar, throat tab, two bellow pockets and a sideways pocket I've seen used a few times with newer labels such as Woolrich Woolen Mills. I had assumed this was for mobile phones, but obviously not. Perhaps it was for sunglasses? or maybe flares/hotdogs? I love the wooden toggles too.
Sadly, as it's a two way coat, the only label is in the pocket and someone has torn it out to within about half an inch, so I can't quite make out who made this, whilst it's not important I'd love to know. Interestingly enough, I noticed it's exactly the same jacket as the Mighty-Mac one pictured above. A nautical label which became kaput by the 1980's but has since been resurrected via Japan, I'd be surprised if this isn't an original.
