When I got this sweater recently I thought it looked like of of those famous 40's sweaters, but I really didn't know anything about them, so I started with the label, Suse, and low and behold, the originals were by Suse! I looked on the Label Resource here, and searched the site for discussions about these fabulous sweaters, but couldn't find anything. In fact most articles I found online seem to trace back to a Life Magazine article from 1947, but I can find no other info, like how long the sweaters were in production or anything like that. I found a vintage button front Paris themed cardigan on Etsy that has many similar details, and pretty much the same embroidered label, although my label is of different colors. Compared to historical pictures I found online, my sweater looks spot-on: It's a knitted pullover with three self-fabric buttons on the right shoulder, with hand-stitched felt appliqué decorated with faux jewels and beading. I have never even dreamed of owning one of these sweaters, and it seems almost too good to be true, especially considering its condition. Somebody must have had it very carefully squirreled away!
