The mackinaw jacket was first introduced in the late 19th century by the Mackinaw Fur Company. Originally favored by Native Americans and fur trappers in the area, the mackinaw jacket immediately caught on as the outerwear of choice for lumberjacks. The mackinaw style quickly gained acceptance with students and businessmen, with the style evolving many times over the years. The mackinaw peaked in popularity as a brightly colored, double breasted coat in the early 20th century, but has never really fallen out of favor.
Over the years there have been several styles of wool coat that fall under the "mackinaw" title, with our modern take being the newest entry. Crafted from a 12oz Italian wool and fully lined with diamond quilting, this jacket will keep you warm as the weather turns from "brutally cold" to "mildly uncomfortable", with the french terry hood providing an extra pop of style.
