Western-Style Leather Jacket
1993

An enduring style
This deerskin jacket in butternut yellow was made by the San Francisco firm North Beach Leather in 1993. Such "Western-style" jackets, as they are now known, evolved from the 18th-century hunting coat, which in turn had been adapted from Native American garments from the eastern part of the United States and Canada.
