Vintage 1920s Lowe & Campbell 'Lock Haven' Wool SweatshirtClutch Cafe
A very rare example of wool sweatshirt made by Lowe & Campbell in the 1920s or early 30s. Made to the same pattern as the much more common cotton sweatshirts, some of the earliest designs were made in a dense tightly woven wool, a fabric used much more regularly in the 1920s.
All cotton loop-wheeled sweatshirt became the standard during the 1930s with very few of these examples remaining.
The sweatshirt has striped cotton ribbing at the cuffs, waistband & collar, which also has an interesting V-shaped scoop to the neck. Sewn-on the back in gelt letting is 'Lock Haven', a Pennsylvanian University founded in 1870, renamed Lock Haven in 1926.
The sweatshirt is in good condition for its age with no major issues or Caws. The wool as discoloured over time giving it a beautiful patina which only adds to the character of this highly collectable item.
As with most vintage items they have been previously worn and loved and will display wear in accordance to and usage. Please read the description fully and study the images and if you have any questions please feel free to email us.
