1950s Sport Chief Jacket Size 38 Rockabilly Gabardine

Vintage Sport Chief gaberdine jacket by Chief Apparel of NY. Gabardine, an early water and wind repellant fabric gets it’s qualities from the manner in which it is woven. It remained a popular option until the development of more sophisticated weatherproof materials made of nylon. This jacket features Leather shoulders, pocket accents and button covers. Front closure is attained by a Conmar locking zipper. The liner features the MG automobile company logo. Not sure if this was a promotional piece, or the Chief Apparel designers were just fans.
