Vintage 1970s White Mongolian Curly Lamb Fur Vest Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a 1970s vintage vest made of white curly lamb, sometimes referred to as “Mongolian lamb”. The vest is entirely white except for a brown patch at the upper back left shoulder (see photo of back), original to the pelt. It has no closures, so is meant to wear open, and is lined in white acetate fabric. The vest was made by Kates of Canada under their Boutique brand name - Kates was primarily a milliner, but it makes sense that they would make a fur vest to match a fur hat. The size label reads M for medium, but please note the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 19” across
Bust: 40” around with a normal gap at the front
Waist: 40” around with a normal gap at the front
Overall length: 28" long, measured flat
It is in very good condition with no wear, tear, soiling or odour.
Nice quality curly lamb, thick and dense - great looking vintage vest!
