This is a fantastic, heavy knit, 1950's dark green college sweater.
It features 5 green plastic buttons on the front and an inset pocket on the front right side at the waistline.
It has two contrasting knitted yellow stripes on the left sleeve with off white stripes bordering them. The yellow stripes are 1cm wide and the off white stripes are each 0.5cm wide.
There is an additional dark green band sewn below these stripes at the elbow, and this measures 3cm in width.
The original label as seen in the detailed image below is branded "Smiths" and states the knit was woven at "Roy M.Smith Knitting Mills" in "San Francisco".
The fabric is "100% wool" as printed on the neck label.
There are a few very small holes on the garment, as expected with it's age. There is a very small hole at the back of the left sleeve at the wrist (see photo) and also on the band at the left neck which has been repaired (see photo). These do not affect the performance of the garment.
This is collectable and very on-trend vintage knit.
