1) SOLD LL Bean Norwegian sweater. Rugged, hardwearing, beautiful, and made in their home country of Norway, the LL Bean Norwegian sweater debuted in 1965, and attained iconic status in the 1980s when it was featured in The Official Preppy Handbook.... a rare case of a fashion book identifying something that was already beloved, rather than trying to invent something new! This is now justly considered THE Ivy sweater.... although these are no longer made, being discontinued by Bean (or laid to "res", as Bean put it) in the late 1990s. However, this was such a popular and iconic item that bean reintroduced it in 2009--albeit with a different fabric content and sizing.

This is one of the original versions, in 80% wool and 20% rayon. Remember, THESE ARE NO LONGER MADE! This was Made in Norway, and is in Excellent condition. Moreover, this is the VERY rare dark charcoal grey and red version. Size Large. Chest: 22 3/4; Sleeve 33; Length: 25 3/4. Asking just $35, or offer.
