Vintage Finds: Wool Fisherman Sweater & Army Cargos

There’s not much for specialty stores in Pennsylvania, but I did have some pretty decent luck at second-hand stores while up there. I had been looking for a oatmeal colored fisherman sweater for awhile, and thanks to a Goodwill somewhere near Mt. Ligonier – the hunt is over. Knit of mainly wool with a really slubby texture, this was an awesome find for under $3. Next up, a pair of Winfield Mfg Company Cargos from a really rad vintage shop located in the south side of Pittsburgh. I wanted some olive drab cargos for awhile, but every pair I found was manufactured in China, and just felt like bad quality. These are made of a 50% Cotton/50% Poly blend with tons of little details:

  • 6 snap-secured pockets
  • Suspender buttons inside
  • Side-tabs for waist adjustment
  • Draw-string hem
  • Serval zipper fly
  • Made in USA

  1. Money! I found a heavy wool oatmeal colored REI sweater last week. Cuts the cold so well. Gotta love finding an entire US made kit for under $20.
