One my latest denim treasures is this vintage denim Powrhouse jacket from the late ’50’s or begin of the ’60’s. The jacket was sold exclusively sold through the Montgomery Ward retail chain in the U.S.A. Montgomery Ward is a department store retailer, which operated between 1872 and 2000. The jacket had original sleeves but they are cut off by their previous owner. The model of the jacket is inspired by the 507XX – Type 2 – jacket from Levi’s Jeans which came out in 1953. In those times you saw a lot of workwear brands with references to the leader in the market, Levi’s. The Powr House jacket is made with a non-selvage right hand fabric and has the 101 buttons. It has a great vintage washed out look. Check it out here below.
