VINTAGE DEADSTOCK 1930's-1940's SPORTSWEAR BRAND SWEATER COAT


Vintage 1930's-1940's Sportswear brand Sport Sweater Coat. These cardigan type sweaters were often referred to as Spa Coats or Sports Coats. Features included reinforced seams, ribbed cuffs, roomy pockets and elastic knit worsted wool or wool blend that stretched to fit the body without bulk, making it versatile for work or recreation. This example recently sold for just over $425. Due to it's highly desirable size and N.O.S. / deadstock condition, also taking into account the identity of the winning bidder, this beauty will likely be on it's way to Japan shortly.
This version features large cat's eye buttons

  2. I have a suede leather jacket by Sportswear but it has a different tag. It's definitely 40s-50s but I am not sure. It'll be posted on eBay today.
