1939 Beer Jacket
Beer Jacket 1939 Rear
Chore coat in off-white cotton twill with stenciled decoration.
1939’s design shows a bottle emblazoned with “VAT 39” a play on the name of a brand of blended Scotch whiskey called Vat 69. The design is an indicator of the carefree interests of undergraduates on the eve of World War II.
