Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a 1950s, maybe early 60s, vintage men’s long sleeved cardigan style sweater jacket.  It has a metal zipper down the front, rounded neckline and a geometric knit pattern in blue and white against a maroon coloured background.  There is a pocket built onto either lower front side.  It is marked as a size XL, but I think that that is more like an adolescent XL - more like a men’s medium, please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurements to a similar sweater that you might own and note that the knit has some stretch to it):

Shoulders:  17 1/2” across from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 24” long from shoulder/sleeve seam to cuff

Sleeve inseam:  20 1/2”

Chest: 40” around, taken under the arms, unstretched

Bottom: 29” around, unstretched, stretches out to 36” max

Overall length: 23", measured flat

Label: Tommy Knight Reg’d Knitwear.  I believe that Tommy Knight was a Canadian manufacturer based in Winnipeg. 

It is in very good condition - looks like it saw slight, use and has been well stored over the years 

This is a wonderful rockabilly era sweater!
