My New Old Sweater



I debuted my latest thrift store find last weekend, this 50+ year old sweater, Swiss made, the company listed on the label went out of business in 1958, evidently they supplied upscale skiwear to the European market:


Not a very subtle pattern, but in nearly perfect condition, perhaps it had been given as a gift, worn once then put away.

A dead man's clothes.

I'm not superstitious.

And it is really a very nice sweater.
