Frontiersman Jacket

No. 1922




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

“A Daring and Intensely Wild Life.”

—C. Burdett, Life of Kit Carson (1869).

Mountain man. Trapper. Indian agent. Scout.

Christopher “Kit”Carson led the expeditions that got the wagon trains rolling west in the 1840s; “the most remarkable of American frontiersmen,” they called him.

He was fluent in Navajo, Apache, Cheyenne, Arapaho, Shoshone, Paiute, and Plains Indian sign language, as wellas English and Spanish.

On one occasion, unexpectedly attacked by a pair of large, angry grizzly bears, he unsheathed his knife, hacked off a tree branch, and beat their noses with it until they re-treated.

The old steel engravings show a fierce-eyed young man, quite handsome, dressed in a fringe jacket. This fringe jacket. Why fringes? They tended to drain off the rain, it’s said.

Frontiersman Jacket (No. 1922). Soft, strong goat suede, body lined in cotton twill, sleeves lined in poly taffeta. Roomy, so it can be worn over heavier clothing. Two welted pockets, one interior pocket. Three marbled buttons. 6” fringe across the chest, across the back, down the sleeves, and across the bottom; it moves when you move. Imported.

A necessary, comfortable, and hard-wearing jacket for the independent

individual who doesn’t just go along with everybody else. Didn’t then, doesn’t now.
