Traditional design and construction in this handsome, high-quality sweater have let it last for 50+ years with very little sign of wear. Nice, soft virgin wool and buttery suede, plus knotted leather buttons made this a favorite, iconic style for decades.
I’m always so glad to find garments like this one in such wonderful condition. Big for me, but I know someone who might find it to be just the thing .. . . . . . . . . . . . .
Great find! My second one here, a couple of weeks ago and I was thrilled to discover this classic Sixties style in beautiful fabric from Scotland, and in almost perfect condition.
Look at the colors in that plaid – classic tartans and tweeds from Scotland and Ireland are so beautiful and of such exceptional quality. It just doesn’t get better.
Fully lined with a metal zip up the back. Just what a mid-sixties schoolgirl, co-ed or young career woman might have worn. It seems that it is an unusual find here, because not many woolens are worn, due to the warm climate. We have the British heritage to thank for this!
Finding this was almost as good as petting koalas and kangaroos . . . . .
