♛These unworn women's 1940s wool vests are just ideal and in a versatile navy blue. Nice thin knit that layers over and under stuff beautifully, providing cozy insulation warmth. And I have MULTIPLES of them to share!

These carry three different labels, but all are identical in style and color. Fit-to-Fit, Eaton's (a Canadian department store), and Regent Knit Fashions. 

V-neck with a cute cut, ribbed knit design, and nipped wasp waist. Wear alone as a top  or layer up. How often do you see deadstock 40s knits? Be the first to enjoy!

Each is an individual piece in the same style and color as example photo. 

Please read sizing information and then choose your vest from the drop-down menu.

♛Condition

Unworn/deadstock vintage with tags attached. 70+ years old. Beautifully preserved and free of blatant issues.

I didn't notice any overt blemishes when going over these. There might be the rare tiny and easy to miss imperfection, especially considering the age of these woolen textiles. We always cull out anything with notable flaws or issues.

To preserve their deadstock status and friendly pricing, these have not been cleaned by us. A normal dry cleaning or hand washing works great.

Return & Refund Policy

Vintage is sold as-is and all sales are final. All vintage garments will show signs of previous wear and use, including deadstock and unworn pieces. We take extra care to note and/or photograph any imperfections we find. You can read our thousands of happy reviews on Etsy and eBay for an idea of the quality and high standards we strive to keep.
