Anyone know the history of the blanket lined / sherpa type 2 or 3 cowboy jacket? Was it something that the Cowboy took it upon himself to do initially or was it driven by the manufacturers like Lee & Wrangler in response to demand. I’m taking it upon myself to line one of my MF jackets because despite the multitude of sherpa jackets out there I can’t find one that hits the spot. It shouldn’t be an overally complicated operation & ive sourced some very nice old school shearling. . Any advice / thoughts.

I would imagine the tailoring would have to be absolutely spot on with a bulky lining like that.

Cool idea.
I've always found it a pity, that basically all boa linings are polyester and no shearling.
You might need to size up for that, though.

John, I don’t think this was something driven by an individual’s decision - I’d hazard the guess this would be industry looking to capitalise on a market sector. Lining chore coats with blanket was already quite common (being pre-WW2, rather than post war for Type 2 and 3s) so I think the big manufacturers would have developed it on from that. Also, being post war I think shearling flying jackets would be fresh in the mind too. Synthetic fleece didn’t arrive until about 40 years ago so that’s not the influence but just a modern implementation.

I would be careful as others have mentioned about the tailoring and sizing - adding a lining may not be overly complicated but might have a big impact on the fit, although I’m sure you’ll have thought of that.

Really looking forward to see what you achieve though - your other projects have been excellent

We need to co-exist on a more equal footing with fury animals so rather than using synthetic shearling, beaver, fox ect for collars, ruffs, and linings i propose we make miniature outfits, with matching hats, gloves and booties then we can do a voluntary exchange program with our heads held high knowing we're helping out mother nature (for a change) in the style department..

Yers ago there was a Hudson's Hill blanket jacket going super-cheap in the sales thread, i wondered then how easy it would be to re-tailor it for a linning, so i too am looking fwd to the results.

I bought an LVC lined Type 2 on a trip to Aero Leathers around 10 years ago.

After washing, the denim shrank at a hugely different rate to the lining.

Consequently, the lining was almost hanging out of the jacket - an uncomfortable garment to wear.

I guess you would be OK to add a lining to an already shrunk jacket, but I would soak/wash the lining just to be sure.

I look forward to seeing your results
