Deadstock true vintage -- with original paper size tag attached. I have lint-rolled but not washed these so they retain "new" status.

I did not see any visible flaws or issues with these. Due to being 70+ years old and a group of individual wool pieces, there's the small possibility of pinholes or a similar tiny age-related imperfection not seen when worn. Since they are priced about $100 or more less than the few (non-deadstock) comps out there, I think this is reasonable.


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Please be familiar with vintage clothing and read over our shop policies before purchasing. We are happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing. wm
