70's Wool jacket (M)
Super cool wool overshirt/jacket in a classic red/black buffalo check. This particular wool weave feels like qualities made before the 1960's, but the jacket has a Talon zipper with that iconic 70's big puller, which is the only dateable identifier on this jacket. However, the zipper seems to be sewn on later, as the seems look very home-made, so this might be a pre-70's jacket that was repaired with a new zipper in the 1970's. Anyway! Great boxy fit with a perfect short length. Cool square patch pockets at the chest with two buttons closing the flaps, and handwarmer pockets at the waist. The wool fabric is in great condition. The only sign of hard wear is the polyester interfacing inside the cuffs, which is completely worn through. Fits a size M, sleeve length is good for people around 177 cm tall and shorter, sleeve length 56 cm.
Chest width 55 cm
Front Length 64 cm
