1920s/30s French Corduroy Vest with Replaced ‘Napkin’ Back - Coffee Brown - S


Really unique piece here. This is a 1920s or 30s Corduroy Work Vest (yes corduroy used to be a work material). At some point, the back of the vest was entirely replaced, and they used a traditional French country patterned Napkin to do so. Not sure when the repair was done, but certainly before the ‘60s. Very unique. Corduroy is soft and velvety, with some minor paint marks throughout. On this inside of the vest is a beautiful denim chambray with tremendous fading. Three pocket design. This is a beauty. Fit is best for a true size small.


Suggested Size: Fits S.
Width (pit to pit): 20.5”
Length (top of collar to points /front center hem): 25”
Length (top of collar to back hem): 22.5”
