It’s unusual to find a woman’s golf sweater – very mid-century sporty. Love the turquoise color. I’m not sure yet whether this knit is of acrylic or wool – there are no tags for content or care. Regardless, I’ll get a lot of use from this one!
It’s got classic design features like the little front pockets (that are still stitched closed!) and 2-button trim on each side seam at the waist. Of course, an embroidered cloth label giving the size in inches.
Fun, fun, fun! I’ve got some men’s clothing to show you, too . . . . . . . . … . . ..
A 1970’s icon, the Izod “alligator” golf cardigan sweater. Also in acrylic knit and in generally better taste than the souvenir sweater of yesterday.
However, ’70’s is what it is and will never occupy a big part of my true vintage closet. That said, these sweaters are favorites and the alligator logo makes them special.
I also have a v-neck style in turquoise. A bit preppy, but the “country club” look has been around for a while in varying forms. And. a great cardigan mixes in nicely with certain other vintage pieces.
I shouldn’t be a vintage snob. This is a super sweater and, as I’ve said, has its iconic status. Izod has been a quality maker and is a good brand to keep an eye open for when looking for 1970’s treasures.
