Mad for Plaid

There's something about wearing plaid on the cold blustery days of late autumn that feels so right.  I love the look of this simple jacket worked in a large scale plaid worn over a pair of jeans and a tee.  It's by Juniorite and is made from a traditional tartan wool in blue and brown.  Love that collar!  Sold for $25 in 1954 (about $215.00 in today's dollar.)  If you could find it, I'll bet the quality of the wool and construction would mean this jacket was still going strong 58 years later.  That's one of the reasons I love vintage.
