A BEAUTIFUL 1970’S LONG VEST BY BUTTE KNIT

Another beautiful knit garment by a famous vintage label. Some knits from the early 1970’s were still among the best ever made and Butte Knits could always be depended upon. This example is iconic with it’s heavy weight, elegant design and excellent tailoring. Although the label carried on during more recent decades, older items are still the best.

With a simple center back Talon zipper, well-finished seams, decorative covered button trim and deep slits on each side, this vest is very versatile and also a statement piece. And, obviously it was valued by it’s original owner because the condition is near-perfect. I will wear it forever.

This latest expedition continued to center on the 1970’s to 1980’s era, so wait to see what else turned up . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
