RELIST/REDUCED: R by 45 rpm Japan ivory felted wool sweater M
I got this amazing felted wool sweater from the R by 45 rpm store in Soho. It has a small button detail on the right side near the hem, and two subtle spiral details—one on the neckline and one on the left sleeve (these represent the label). It is handmade in Japan, and it is honestly one of the nicest garments I own in terms of quality. I am letting it go because it is too big for me so I rarely wear it.
Color: Ivory Material: 100% felted wool Size: 4 (approximately a medium), measure 27" long (measured down the back), approx. 20.5" across under armpits Condition: Worn a couple times in like-new condition
Paid: $320 Asking: $60 + shipping Listing ends: September 7
Please leave your email in the comments section if interested. Thanks for looking!
the rules are simple: 1. this is not a blog about making a profit.it is NOT intended as a site for recycling fast fashion. it is a place where you can buy and sell (and share) clothing by independent designers as well as classic, high quality pieces of both contemporary and vintage make. 2. if you're selling, include pertinent information like measurements, imperfections or fit issues, and the best photographs you can manage. only list the designer or time period (e.g. 1940's) in the label section. don't forget to close the listing (include winner's name) listings must last a minimum of 1 week. 'first come first served' is no longer an option since the spirit of the blog is to give everyone a fair chance. 3. if you want the item, leave your name and contact information in the comments. if you do not leave your email, you will not be included in the drawing. each listing will be active for 7-28 days. at the end of this period, a name will be randomly drawn by the seller. the buyer has 2 business days to pay or make an arrangement. 4. if you are on the receiving end, it is always nice to offer something so other people can have the opportunity to have it. 5. if you have not posted any items in the previous 2 months, i will contact you about giving up your spot as a blog author to someone on the waiting list. 6. i have created an OPEN ID for previous blog authors who would like to continue to post occasionally. please EMAIL me for the username and password.
