In vintage clothing sometimes great finds just land on your doorstep. Doing a bit of research revealed that this humble denim jacket is maybe from the 1930s or 1940s but definitively not younger than that. The Duck Head logo and the buttons with the O'Bryan Bros embossed on them pointed us to the Duck Head brand which is still in existence today. Founded by the O'Bryan brothers George and Joe in 1865, the brand started making clothing out of the surplus tent from the Civil War in which they both fought. Duck is actually the Dutch word 'doek' meaning cloth, and it is very often used for duck canvas.
The triple stitched seam, the elegant shoulder construction, the tab collar, the great patina... Where do we start or end pointing out the amazing details on this jacket. A very unique collectors one of a kind piece packed with history and character.
