Vintage Pringle Scottish Cashmere Cardigan Sweater Patriotic Red White & Blue M


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a very nice quality 100% pure cashmere cardigan sweater made in Scotland by Pringle for Canadian department store chain Eaton’s.  The sweater dates to the 1960s - easy to verify because Eaton’s has an apostrophe, which was dropped by Eaton’s in 1971.  It is made in patriotic colours - blue background with red and white trim.  The buttons are made of brass and have a raised eagle clutching an anchor and surrounded by stars.  The sweater has an open V neckline, six button double breasted closure, three button cuffs and long sleeves.  There is a pocket built onto either side. It is unlined - the cashmere has a soft nappe and is thick yet light, beautiful quality.   

Label: Styled by Pringle for Eaton’s of Canada Made in Scotland.  A second label reads “100% Pure Cashmere Made in Scotland”.   

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  15” across, seam to seam

Sleeves:  20 1/2” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  16”

Bust:  33” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  33”  around

Overall length:  23”, measured flat

Condition:  It is in very good condition with the exception of a repair to the front next to one of the buttons (see last two close-up photos).  Otherwise, there is no pronounced wear, tear, holes or other defect.  I have laundered the item, so it is ready to wear. 

This is a beautiful quality cashmere sweater - very patriotic, great for sailing!
