Code: 55876


A nice original 1960s French duck cotton canvas Hunting jacket made by 'Adolphe Lafont' in a size 44" chest.

This is a truly classic piece of mid Century French outerwear. It is made from a thick, khaki - tan coloured cotton duck canvas material and is cut in a typical manner for the mid Century period and could easily pass as a 1940s jacket. The front of the jacket features patch pockets which all feature square pocket flaps and the collar is a typical shape for the period. The jacket features metal hunting style buttons which are often found on this type of jacket. At the rear of the jacket there are two large openings to each side seam which allow access to a large poachers pocket inside the jacket. These fasten with press studs and are a typical attribute of this style of jacket.

The interior of the jacket features a partial cotton lining to the rear panel. There is a single interior pocket which bears the maker's label to the outside. This features typical period graphics along with the maker's name of 'Adolphe Lafont' and the place name of Lyon. 

The jacket will suit around a 44" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat it measures - 

Chest - 25"
Inside arm - 22"
Outside arm - 26"
Shoulders - 19"
Length at rear - 29"

The jacket is in very good condition as can be seen in the pictures. It displays well and is totally wearable with no serious flaws or damage. There are some limited signs of wear and age so please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that it is a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

A fantastic example of a French hunting jacket with great details.
