The 100 Holes Varsity Cardigan

$378.00 Sale Save

1973 varsity cardigan. Purple knit with yellow/gold patches throughout. "Phil." There were originally 100 holes in this cardigan when it first came to us, so we repaired each and every one using a Swiss darn technique, some with a gold contrasting thread and others with lighter purple thread. This is a one-of-a-kind piece with some incredible history and it's ready for a long new life!

We encourage you to spot clean and spray with a mixture of lavender (or any other antimicrobial essential oil) and water while the garment is inside-out for a refresh. Washing less helps to extend the life of your garment. 
When necessary hand-wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
If you choose to dry clean, we recommend using a trusted green clean specialist in your area. If you're in San Francisco, I trust Sonia's Cleaners.

Vintage/second-hand items may come with minor flaws due to pre-loved wear. Plant dyed items are all dyed by hand; saturation dye patterns tend to not be uniform (which is a characteristic that we LOVE). Please enjoy and appreciate this item with its unique character. Vintage items are FINAL SALE. We want you to be happy with your one-of-a-kind piece, so please email for any questions regarding fit or condition.
