♛This deadstock/unworn women's US Air Force cardigan is just ideal, perfectly balanced in its shape and crafted of the kind of quality flat-weave pure wool you just don't find any more, not at this price point. For the price of a couple fast fashion cardies that are designed to wear out in a single year, you get a high quality piece of history that will last a lifetime with proper care, and will maintain its collectibility.

Knit lapels, extra-long, easily foldable cuffs, lovely little front pockets, shank Lucite buttons. Built to wear and to last!

Each is an individual piece in the same style and color as example photo. Dates and labeling may vary as these were made exactly the same for decades; our group has had examples spanning from the 1960s into the 1970s.

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

From a very cool and extensive military collection that has found fans worldwide. If you love a piece, don't miss it!

Note: these are unworn with original tags attached.

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.

♛Condition

Great vintage shape. Unworn/deadstock vintage with tags attached. 40-50+ years old. Due to their age it's reasonable to say that there might be a rare tiny imperfection, easily missed, but we do check our deadstock collections closely, piece by piece, and remove anything with overt issues.

They have been stored, time capsule-like, for decades and will benefit from a dry clean or hand wash before you wear them the first time. We will briefly lint roll each piece before shipping. They can be cleaned and cared for just like modern woolens.

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.
