True Vintage 1940s Varsity Jacket
By Allen Sport Shops, Inc, New Rochelle New York.

Deep red burgundy wool featuring ‘RYE’ chenille patch to chest.
Fully quilted. 
A rare design of these jackets as it has the elastic at side of each waist, which gives the silhouette of the 1940s. 
Features hip pockets and fastens with metal ‘Nynco’ zip and three metal poppers. 

This jacket is 70- 80 years old and, as such, does have signs of wear. 

Zip is in good working order and the wool is in good condition. One small darning mend near pocket.
There is general discolouration to lining, wear to cuffs and lining edge of cuffs, top popper has popped out (still attached to the other) and the second popper is fragile. Please view photos.

I estimate this jacket to best fit a Men’s L, depending on required fit. Please look at measurements below:
