This is a vintage wool Lasley Knitting Co circa 1940s letterman cardigan with ribbed turn up cuffs, button fastening front and collegiate patch. Made in the USA.
Used and in good vintage condition considering its age with general signs of wear, abrasion and some light marks. There is a small hole to the lower left hem of the cardigan (as worn) as well as to the right lower side seam. However, they do not detract from the quality and character of the cardigan. Not quite perfect but still a lot of life left in this cardigan considering it's circa 80 years old. Freshly steamed and ready for its new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
