If you read Selectism on the regular, you may be aware of the coverage we give to heritage brands; especially when they are re-absorbed by the international markets. Gant with BEAMS+ and Woolrich Mill come to mind.

But when I ran across this true piece of vintage American heritage wear on Reference Library, I found it well deserving of a bigger audience. Check these two incredible sweaters from the early 1940’s. These PSU lettermen’s sweater and crew are pure example of that very time and place. You can see the lettermen rocking these throughout campus. Very solid example of America’s heritage in varsity fashion.

You can see the original auction here. Sold as part of a lot for 1325$US.
