Vintage Missoni Mens Knit Pullover Sweater Multicolour Stripe Size L Tall
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an authentic vintage Missoni mens pullover sweater featuring horizontally arranged multicoloured and blended stripes. The sweater has a V shaped neckline and maroon red banding at the neckline, cuffs and bottom. It has dropped sleeves (seam falls off the shoulder cap on the upper arm). The knit features a “nubby” textured open weave.
Label: “Missoni Uomo Made in Italy” on a white cloth. I believe that this label was used during the 1980s. Missoni was founded in 1953 by husband and wife Ottavio and Rosita Missoni. They introduced the zigzag flame striped knit pattern that they are now associated with during the early 60s.
Material: 51% Mohair / 26% Cotton / 14% Linen / 9% Nylon
Sizing: There is no size label, and although this appears to be a size large tall, please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the sweater into consideration (your body measurements should be slightly smaller):
Shoulder: 23” across from shoulder seam to shoulder seam - note that this is a “dropped sleeve” style
Sleeves: 28 1/2” with the cuff turned upSleeve inseam: 17”
Chest: 52” around
Bottom band: 34”, unstretched, up to 40”+ fully stretched
Overall length: 28", measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or pulls. It has not been dry cleaned (commercial dry clean only is recommended on the label) but this sweater looks to have seen little use and was well kept over the years.
This is a wonderful vintage Missoni sweater - excellent Missoni quality, instantly recognizable multicolour stripe, sure to be noticed!
