You don't know how glad I am to hear this. We're of like mind then...
i knew you were a fan by your signature-line.
As they say in Ireland: Good man yourself!
I have too many vintage sweaters, but this is by far my favourite. By Spalding Bros, from the 20s or 30s, probably. It's too long, so I have to turn up the body hem.
Here is a cartoon from 1929. Diogenes disapproves of your flashy college fashion
Are we looking at some genuine Oxford bags here?
The scan is from one of my Schneidermeister mags but the original cartoon appeared in an american publication. The article doesn't state more details [huh] It just makes fun of the silly americans I guess.
Looks similar to the John Held Jr. illustrations of the 20s.
Nice. I like it. Now that winter is almost here, I see these sweaters with envy again.
What's interesting about the ownership label on this sweater is that zip codes like this one ("91107") were not used in the U.S. before 1963. In other words, someone was wearing this 1920s sweater in the mid 1960s, if not later.

It's one of those weird things.
Or it may have been sitting around in a store or high school stock room for all that time and then bought/issued. Or the style was still available.
The Spalding label is a very old one, certainly.
Decadent capitalist fashion? Although there was much artistic creativity in pre-Stalinist insanity Russia.
That's Sergei Eisenstein, right? I can't help but think that he looks a little like the slightly calmer brother of Jack Nance in Eraserhead... :eeek:
Or possibly Garfunkel
Well, yes, but...no. As far as I know the fellow is - even after all those years - still constantly high as a kite, which is to say that he would have considerable difficulties putting on that solemn look. Just look at that photo!
some serious verisimilitude by RRL.
That's fantastic! Thanks for sharing those photos!
This is fantastic!
Now, this is the kind of collegiate style I longed to see around campus, both when I was a university student AND as a college instructor! Love it!
The (orange) RRL cardigan itself looks cool but there is the brand name all over the patches. Deal breaker for me. :eusa_doh:
