eBay find: Wool pullover photograph

Continuing an infuriating trend of finding images of garments that just cannot be found anymore:

Images of pullover garments used by lumberjacks and sportsmen of yesteryear are not hard to come by, extant examples are. This appears to be a caped shirt-jacket with a very wide placket.


  1. There are a lot of older garments I see that I find really intriguing. Did they get supplanted because the newer things were genuinely better?

    This isn’t quite the same thing, but you might find something you like here.

    1. My father has a Fred Asbell jacket, I was honestly underwhelmed. I have some swanndri pullovers but I'm still hoping for a Best Made one someday.
