This is a wonderful antique mens riding jacket that is really interesting, but a bit of a mystery.  After consultation with my colleagues at the Vintage Fashion Guild, none of us could quite precisely identify either the maker or the purpose of the jacket, but surmised that it probably was meant for riding.  It is made with a sturdy faille fabric that is probably wool based.  The fabric has vertical double pinstripes woven throughout the jacket.  This antique mens riding jacket has high set notched lapels, a three button front and flapped slanted patch pockets at the left chest and at either side.  The sleeve cuffs are delineated by a seam and each has two buttons affixed to it.  The bottom back has a 14” vent.  What especially differentiates this antique mens riding jacket is a flounced bottom back that has four sets of snaps affixed to the lining.  It would appear that the snaps affix to one another so that the flounce would be folded up - the view the photos of the flounce folded up, taken both of the exterior and interior.  This antique mens riding jacket is fully lined in a striped fabric.

This is an unusual and interesting antique mens riding jacket - great conversation piece!
