Vintage 1970s Jaeger British Cashmere Sweater Vest Argyle Pattern Ladies M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a lovely quality 100% pure cashmere sweater vest made in Great Britain by Jaeger. I believe that it dates to the 1970s as it came from the estate of a lady who owned a lot of cashmere knit, most of it dating to the 1960s or 70s. It is made in grey with an argyle design on the front in black, red and darker grey - the back is plain grey. It closes with six buttons at the front. There is ribbing edging the front opening, arm openings and bottom. It is, of course, sleeveless and it is unlined.
Label: Jaeger London Paris New York 100% Cashmere Made in Great Britain. There is a second label that reads “Made in England The Bay”.
Sizing: The size on the label indicates a 34” chest (86 cm), and although the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, noting that there is stretch to the knit:
Shoulders: 13” across
Bust: 34” around, taken under the arms, unstretched
Bottom: 27” around, unstretched, stretches out to 34” max - it has a ribbed bottom
Overall length: 24”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, holes or other defect.
This is a very nice quality cashmere sweater vest - classic argyle pattern!
