Class of 1932 leather vest.
Each year since 1922, it had been custom for the junior class to select some distinctive article of dress. The class of 1932 selected the sleeveless leather jacket. The jackets chosen were dark brown leather with light brown pockets and fringe. One pocket had the class numeral '32. The jacket was selected in an effort to do away with the old sweater type of dress and to put in its place a piece of clothing typical of the west. These vests were sold by the Missoula Mercantile and were originally purchased for $20.00 each
