”Girl in every port”. Customised U.S. marines cotton jacket. The deerskin leather patches were attached later for gun shooting. The hand-painted graphics were added by the original owner. You saw a lot of these customized jackets during the war. The jacket is from circa 1910.

Owner of the jacket is vintage hunter Larry McKaughan (King of Vintage). The jacket is also published in the Rin Tanaka books, My Freedamn 5 and King of Vintage #1.
