Around here, the Walls name is as knows and loved as the venerable Carhartt. In 1938, George Walls began making coveralls in Dallas, Texas for the oil and gas industry. The business rapidly expanded and George built a factory and headquarters in Cleburne, Texas. As the business continued to grow, there were a number of milestones along the way. Walls was the only brand of coverall that Red Adair would wear when we fought oil fires. Halliburton® workers adopted the Walls brand as their coverall of choice and helped spread the brand's footprint across the world. Walls became the preferred brand for ranchers and farmers across the country.
When we get articles like this one in, we try to keep as much as possible in its original state: we don't dry clean them and we don't patch minor tears. This one was no different. Each stain, each tear tells a story, and we chose to let the next owner decide whether and how to restore it. It is a 30 year old clothing article, with amazing feel and look. We attached our chain-stitched Bonehead patch using miniature rivets, as well as a discrete leather patch on the back seam.
The jacket is marked as 38-40. Shoulder to shoulder is 20 inches and pit to pit is 24 inches. It is a roomy Medium and a comfortable Large.
The enclosed photos have been minimally processed, so the colors are true (as are the stains and tears). Please study them carefully before pushing the Buy button, as we do not accept returns on vintage items such as this.
