Dated 1920 Mens Black Worsted Wool & Silk Back & Interior Vest
I know I don't normally carry men's items but this little vest was so chic that I could not resist it. Plus it was dated to the day 4-2-20 and that just made it that much more special. It is a beautiful example of menswear and it can easily be gender free with its simple but striking cut. The front is curved down at the front with a sleek, tacked down collar that follows that curve. Silver metal buttons close it at the front and there are two little pockets on either side. The back is a black silk and the interior an ivory silk. It has some patina but is sound and still very smart.
Fully lined in a striped ivory silk and buttons to close. I suspect the buttons have been replaced at some point. There are some marks on the inside from improper storage and some vert slight areas of thinning to the back silk. Overall its amazing and for its age in tremendous condition for something just under 100 years old
Note that antique and twenties pieces are final sale. They will be packed exceedingly well and we only sell pieces that will stand up to the stress of shipping, however, having pieces potentially shipped multiple times through multiple customs and countries is too hard on garments that are historically important and deserve to be treated with love and care. Please purchase accordingly.
