Description

This is a fabulous home knit cardigan sweater. Based on Mary Maxim's Prancing Horse pattern from the 50s. Knit in a soft wool or blend in orange and black. It has a turn over collar and it does up with a long metal Lightning zipper.

Modeled on a US size 39/40 form.

Vintage size label: none and we estimate this would best fit a current US mens size XL.

Please rely on the following for fit and allow for ease of movement:

MEASUREMENTS (laid flat and taken on the outside then doubled in inches without stretch):
Shoulder to shoulder: 19
Sleeve: 26, inseam: 19
Armscye - shoulder to underarm: 11
Chest - underarm to underarm: 48
Bottom: 48
Length - collar seam to bottom: 27

VINTAGE RATING/CONDITION: There are a few nubs from knotting the wool when the wool ran out during the knitting process - the most notable is on the upper back to the right, see 2nd to last photo. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition: clean with no holes, tears, rips or stains. It was freshly washed in Eucalan and was laid flat to dry.

Weight: 3 lbs.

International clients, please inquire about mailing costs.

Returns & exchanges

All sales are final. We do not accept returns for fit, colour (as colours may vary from monitor to monitor) or because you do not like it.

However, if we have made an error in a listing, we will be more than happy to accept a return and issue a refund in full. For a refund to be considered you must:

1) contact us within 48 hours of receipt outlining the error
2) mail the item back to our Canadian mailing address by an insured mailing method pre-approved by us and
3) mail out to us within 48 hours of our approval.

We will inspect upon receipt and once we are satisfied we are in error a refund will be issued.

Again, all returns must be sent to our CANADIAN ADDRESS otherwise we will not receive the item.

Shipping policies

We are happy to ship worldwide and we insure all our items. We are based in Canada and, depending on the circumstance, we use Canada Post Air or USPS via a third party carrier that brings packages to the US from here in Canada.

We are happy to combine shipping, but it is not necessarily cheaper due to weight and size restrictions. Please contact us and we will work out available shipping options for you.

We mark the full sale price on all customs forms - no exceptions - and we appreciate your understanding.

Surface shipping is available for International clients (those outside the US and Canada), but it takes a lot longer. European countries from 5 weeks to 3 months and Australia can take more than 3 months. Please contact us for a quote.

US and International clients may incur customs and/or duty fees. We are not responsible for these fees; so please do check with your customs office for specifics.

Additional policies

Our VINTAGE RATING CONDITION CHART:
MINT: like new - no apparent wear
NEAR MINT: minimal, gentle wear from aging - no notable flaws
EXCELLENT: normal wear from aging - does not affect the wearing
VERY GOOD: worn, minor noted flaws - does not affect the wearing
GOOD worn and flawed - only gentle wearing recommended
CUTTER flawed - for study or as a pattern template

How we MEASURE CLOTHING:
Unless otherwise stated, all measurements are in inches and they are taken on the outside of a garment. Each piece is laid flat before measuring. Bust, waist and hip areas etc. are measured across and then the measurement is doubled. We measure each garment at least twice to ensure accuracy. If your waist is 28" and the garment waist is 28", it will not fit if it is a fitted garment - an allowance of 1" to 2" is always best, even more on thicker and heavier items such as over coats.

How we MEASURE SHOES:
Unless otherwise stated, the toe to heel measurement is taken with the measuring tape laid flat against the surface of the inside of the shoe and up and over the arch (if any). For the width we take the widest part of the outside bottom of the shoe. If there is overhang from the top of the shoe, we will give you that measurement as well.

We measure everything twice.

UNSURE IF AN ITEM WILL FIT?:
Take something from your wardrobe that fits you well, measure it in the same fashion we do and compare your measurements to ours.

CLEANING AND REPAIRS:
Any item that requires cleaning and can be hand or machine washed, we do. We also do small repairs such as re-stitching loose hems and sewing on buttons. Any item that requires dry-cleaning or machine stitching such as seam reinforcing, we leave up to the buyer. This will be stated in the listing.
