Vintage 1970s Plaid Cotton Shirt Jacket Bay City Rollers Era BVD Canada Mens S

$95.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a 1970s vintage long sleeved shirt jacket made by BVD as part of their “Sport” line.  The fabric is made in a plaid check.  It has a long pointy collar, a button-down flapped pocket at either side of the chest and an eight button closure including a button and loop at the neck under the collar. It has black elasticized panels at the bottom and black elasticized sleeve cuffs.  The fabric is made of a 100% cotton in a coarse linen type weave.  I would describe the style as mod rockabilly - looks like something that a Bay City Roller would have worn. 

Label:  BVD Sport Made in Canada with a Touch of Taper.  Wonderful period graphic of a man wearing sunglasses and a pointy collared shirt with an ascot.

Size: It is sized as an S (small) but please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the shirt and the stretch of the fabric into consideration:

Neck:  14 1/2”

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

Sleeves:  23” from the shoulder/sleeve seam to the end of the cuff

Sleeve inseam:  21”

Chest:  40” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  29” around, stretches out to 36” due to elasticized panels

Overall length:  24”, measured flat 

Condition:  It is in excellent condition with the exception of a manufacturing defect to the second buttonhole (see last close-up photo), really not very noticeable with the button done up.  Otherwise, crisp and clean with no pulls, snags, wear, tear, soiling or odour - this looks unused and was well kept over the years.

This is a wonderful 70s era shirt jacket - great style, sure to be noticed!
