This late 1960s or early 70s suede vest combines fun color blocking with fabulous fringe! The tabard style vest (open sides) is made of dark blue, dark brown, warm chestnut brown, and tan suede, with dark brown fringe at the hem, and matching dark brown side ties that thread through slits at the waist. The vest is unlined, and has no other fastenings than the fringed side ties. In very good condition, this late 1960s-70s hippie-style fringed vest has these minor issues: a bit of creasing at the bust from normal wear, some creasing to the side ties from being tied closed in storage for many years, and a few small marks on the surface of the suede of the lower front 2 panels (dark brown and blue—see close-up photos). It should fit as intended (a bit loosely) for approximately a modern size XS to S, based on my best guess. Since the sides are open, the size is somewhat flexible, however.
