1960s Heathered Gold Mohair Cardigan



Paired with a cotton turtleneck, the mohair cardigan was the basis for  the original young male preppy look. And it was a look sported by everyone from Troy Donahue to Brian Wilson (the Beach Boys). We think it still screams, though we'd probably nix the turtleneck and pair it with a wife-beater (if you can take the mohair) or v-neck t-shirt (if you can't) instead. Gold mohair knit, heathered with touches of apricot and chartreuse, it has gray shell buttons, and has a fold-back ribbed cuff on the sleeve. Measured at rest, the chest is 41", the hip 35", shoulder 19", sleeve 25" with a 2" roll at the cuff, length 26". Excellent condition.  $95
