Vintage French Tayler Type Hunting Sport Jacket

Vintage French Tayler Type Hunting Sport Jacket

1950-1960 Vintage French Custom Made Tayler Type Hunting Sport Jacket




This hunting jacket is about 70 years old from France. It was probably made to order by tailors, etc., rather than mass-produced in factories at a time when hunting was still a high-class hobby.

Modern hunting clothes are made of synthetic fibers, zippers and velcro in the pursuit of high functionality and performance. This jacket is from a time when there was a lot of flavor left that modern ones have discarded.











The owner’s playful and stylish spirit can be seen in this unusual jacket with a tailored collar, rather than the bal collars seen on most hunting jackets.












In France, hunting as a leisure activity and sport is second only to soccer in popularity.

More than 1.2 million people (mostly men) hold hunting licenses, which is equivalent to about 5% of all French men over the age of 16 who are eligible for a hunting license, second only to the 2.2 million soccer enthusiasts and larger than the 1.1 million tennis enthusiasts.











Hunting used to be a pastime for the privileged and wealthy, such as the aristocracy, and a luxurious pastime for ordinary people other than hunters who hunted as a way of earning a living. However, with the passage of time, hunting gradually became widely enjoyed in the modern era.











A jacket with no game pockets made to hold the game to be hunted. What it means is that the original owner was either someone who did not need to carry the game himself (someone who could have his servants or men carry it for him) or someone who hunted only large four-legged animals such as deer and boar, without hunting small hares or fowl that could fit in the game pockets? That is to say. Hunting large four-legged animals was more gamey than hunting hares, and for a long time was reserved for the aristocracy.










The fact that this jacket belonged to a person of a certain socially high status can be seen in the lack of game pockets, as well as the fact that it was probably tailored by a tailor or other tailor, rather than mass-produced in a factory.











When this jacket was dismantled, what appeared was the careful navy piping on the seam allowance. The careful work done even on the parts hidden by the lining and not visible tells us how good this jacket was born.











This jacket is made of a fabric that seems to have been tailored for the early hunting season (fall) or the off-season (spring), which is different from the gibier season from late fall to winter. The medium cotton twill, which still has a sheen to it, gives a sense of the quality of the fabric.











This jacket shows the owner’s playful spirit, and its details can be seen everywhere. The cuffs, lined with four buttons, can be opened and closed properly.











The darted sleeves, which emphasize the curves of the arms, are so innovative that it is hard to believe that they are 70 years old.











The shape of the pleated pockets shows the stylishness of the owner, who sought more decorative interest than practicality.











These buttons are the most popular among Vintage buttons and were used for French hunting jackets, where one button is equivalent to two Big Macs. Various materials and motifs of animals are randomly selected and sewn on.











The buttons, which have slightly peeling paint and dull color, are etched with the traces of time that have been etched into this jacket.














The jackets, tailored with a three-dimensional pattern in accordance with the basics of French tailoring, are not only functional and made for hunting, but also full of the spirit, beauty, and strength of France.











The hems, which were square in shape, were changed to rounded shapes, and the top-stitch was also unraveled to create a loose, soft form that contains air.











The hems, cuffs, pockets, and flaps are patched with fabrics taken from various vintage sources.











The old lining is removed, dust is removed from the inside, and the contrast of the fabric and color of the hand-mounted liner, as well as the plump taste created by the hand-stitched wrinkles, are elements that remove the filthiness that clings to old clothes, dispel the heavy impression attached to old clothes, and transform them into a modern impression.














Rustic cotton broadcloth has a moderate tension and wrinkle, and the rustic look of the yarn woven in India is appealing.











The pockets are double-lined and then hand scoop-stitched on the inside and sewn to the body to create a full, textured form.











The hand work of attaching the lining and around the hem. The natural disorder caused by the handwork of the stitches that have been carefully sewn into the fabric is a crystallization of time that gives a rich taste.












A basic yet somehow modern appearance. Clothes that can do what old and new alone cannot do.

Clothes that are not just vintage, for people who do not seek only antique value in their clothes, or who do not want their clothes to serve as a price tag to make themselves look expensive.
