  1. Hello everyone! What age can be this jacket? Would it be in Steerhide or Horsehide? Do you know this brand "Montgomery Word" ? I know it's American but I didn't have a direct experience before... I hope somebody wants to be so kind to tell me something about.. Thank you!!

    That label looks to be early 80's era Montgomery Wards. Cowhide. This was right near the end for Wards, who declared bankruptcy in the early 90's when stores like Service Merchandise were becoming more popular.

  3. Thank you very much!!
    But do you think it's a jacket of a certain value? Or is it something I don't know.. level cheap?

    It’s not going to fetch much money but it’s a nice jacket if it fits. Jackets like these aren’t necessarily worth much money but can be valuable to the owner if the fit is good.

    It is a beautiful jacket, in any case. Everything about it is just right.

    Montgomery Ward wasn’t especially an outstanding store, sort of like Sears in the early days. But this jacket seems nice with decent hide and construction. I’d be super happy to own that!

    Montgomery Ward’s Windward would be the exception to that rule.
    One hell of a jacket!!
