Vintage 1940s Ski Jacket Hobby Togs by Philmac Canada Size M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful 1940s ski jacket made of lighter weight brown wool.  The label reads “Hobby Togs by Philmac Sportswear Inc” - Philmac was located on St Alexandre St in Montreal. This 1940s ski jacket does up with a Lightning brand brass zipper diagonally positioned to the left - Lightning is a Canadian brand of zipper.  It has padded squared shoulders, button up cuffs, a button-down flapped pocket at the right and a long pointy collar.  There is a gold toned H and a T at either point of the collar, which stand for Hobby Togs.  It is unlined.

This is a rare 1940s ski jacket, lightweight, almost like a heavy shirt - you don’t often see these!
