Red Checkered Plaid Wool Jacket (L)

Curated Vintage Collection


The Buffalo Plaid, Red and Black Checkered Plaid, Mackinaw Plaid or in Dutch 'Houthakkers' (Lumberjack) Plaid has been a staple fabric for the outdoors in North America ever since the mid 19th century. It's oldest name is probably Buffalo Plaid and first coined around 1850 by a designer at Woolrich Wool Mills. This jacket, which is dated around 1950s is not so old when talking about the Buffalo Plaid fabric, but it is quite old for a garment to still be around and looking so good. The Hercules workwear brand was a subsidiary brand of Sears Roebuck. This amazing shirt-jacket features two big pockets, a zipper and some cool repairs. It can worn as an outer layer or as a shirt, hence the common reference to this type of garment as a shirt-jacket.
