Manly Vintage Sweaters Inspired By Classic Cars

Thursday 12.02.2010 , Posted by

Featuring leather pants, a banjo and a picnic, this vintage sampling of swinging sweaters couldn’t be better. Originally from the 1972 book Sweaters for Men To Crochet and Knit, each design is named after an iconic car of the day. We’ve included a picture of each pullover, cardigan or vest with its namesake vehicle… that should get your stylish wheels spinning!
