Country Clothes, 1967 - Part 2

Part 2 of our romp among the moors of Ireland.  All of these American made country clothes are from 1967.  Do you like these classic styles?

Above:  Suede short jacket and midi skirt trimmed in leather and closed with snaps.  By McDouglas for Highlander.

Gray wool coat by Lassie Junior worn with ribbed sweater tights.  Leather shoulder bag by La Bagagerie.

Junior Sophisticates brown and gray wool plaid suit.  Jacket has a zip front.  Leather boots by Celine.

Anne Klein for Mallory suede maxi skirt and vest with rhinestone buttons.  Worn with a black wool sweater by Geist & Geist.  Note:  This is the first example I've ever seen of the freelance work Anne Klein did for Mallory Leathers.  The following year, 1968, Klein established her own company.  This was an expensive outfit at $200 in 1967 (about $1,380 in today's dollar.)

Green wool tweed coat by Zelinka Matlick.  Worn with a simple turtleneck shift, leather boots and ribbed sweater tights.
