1950’S – 1960’S KNIT VEST; A SURPRISE FIND THAT MAKES ME SO HAPPY!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was so elated to discover this rare sweater knit.  There are only two others in my collection so far that are similar and obviously from the same era.  Possibly designed for men back in the day, but definitely unisex.

The knit is glossy and heavy and the patterns are absolutely fantastic in my others, too – very neat geometric designs – part of the atomic craze.  Just look at this one!  A very MOD pattern, but before that time.  And, in such near-perfect condition.  That ‘s one other advantage – they are quite durable.

Fun, fun, fun. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A TRUE VINTAGE HEAVY KNIT 1950'S - EARLY 1960'S SWEATER-JACKET

A find from out West last time I went, this is my second jacket of this type. It’s made of a very heavy synthetic fiber – probably an acrylic, and has a real Happy Days feel to me – and unisex appeal.

I love the abstract geometric designs on these and the bright Fall colors on this one. Warm and attention-getting. Wear them with slacks, jeans ,leggings or they can even go over a skirt or sheath dress.  . . . . . .

I haven’t even seen any vintage-inspired lookalikes made for these – at least nothing that could be remotely convincing that it’s real.

But, if you are a skilled investigator, you wouldn’t be fooled . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
