vintage 1970s vest
very soft fur
hidden fabric-covered
hook and eye closures
down the front, also has
lapels and full collar,
which is difficult to see
in the photos
two front hand-warmer
pockets at hips
fully lined in a silky
fabric with a graphic print
this piece is from
Bonwit Teller, but the
name of the previous owner
is hand-embroidered
into the interior lining
at one side
this seems to have
originally been a jacket, but
the sleeves were removed
at some point in time, as some
loose threads and seams are
visible in the interior, but this
cannot be seen when the
vest is worn
this alteration gives the vest
a bit of a cap-sleeves effect,
but could be easily changed
into a more straight-up-and-down
vest if desired
(I strongly think this fur is fox, but
I cannot say with certainty)

measurements.....

shoulder: undefined, about 18"
bust: 40" when closed
waist: 40" when closed
length: 27"

brand/maker: Bonwit Teller
condition: very good, see
conversion hypothesis above

from the Vintage Fashion Guild:

Bonwit Teller was a high-end luxury
department store originally founded in
New York City in 1911. They specialized
in ladies wear and went through several
ownership changes until closing in 1990.
