catlady531 on Etsy............Dress like Rick Santorum vest

vintage sweater vest 70s sears kings road heather blue grandpa cardigan vest l xl rick santorum style

This is a vintage 70s grandpa's heather blue cardigan sweater vest. The color of the vest is heather blue. You can see in the closeup pictures the little bits of different colors that makeup the heather blue. The vest has the unique scroll ribbing down the front, neck and pockets. The hem has the classic ribbed knit. Around the neck and down the front and pockets are trimmed in black. The vest buttons down the front with 6 round pearlized buttons. The vest is from Kings Road Sears Men's Store. It is 50% lambs wool and 50% polyester. It is very soft and yes it does have some stretch due to the polyester. It is marked a size xl but in todays measurements it is more like a large and measures,

44" chest (underarm to underarm and doubled)
24" arm hole
25.5" long

The vest is in fantastic vintage condition with no items to note. It has been gently worn, if worn at al. Winter is not yet over and it will keep you toasty on those cold winter days. It is a mans vest, but really I would call it unisex.

On the funny side of things dress like Rick Santorum.
