Please refer to measurements to ensure proper fit.
All of our measurements are taken on the outside of the garment while it is lying flat. Since everyone measures differently. Our measurements vary depending on the unique garment and we offer only our best approximations. Please leave room for movement.

Condition: MINT. Collectors condition. Pretty much flawless, no holes tears or wear. Item was stored correctly in a cedar closet with a collection of other Cashin pieces, one owner. Honestly we don't see vintage items like this often, and I have never seen a "Madonna" widows peak hooded jersey on the market.

Most of Bonnie Cashin designs, from this era are in personal collections or are in museums. Now you can own a piece of fashion history!

One of the first designers to create and popularize women's sportswear, Cashin introduced many unique designs, later standards in the fashion industry. Among these were a roomy turtleneck that did not need a zipper to get it over one's head, or the more whimsical "Madonna" or widow's peak hooded wool jersey to use as a base layer. She introduced the concept of layering to deal with temperature changes and the use of such heavyweight materials as leather (she was the first to do a leather dress). All were created with the new vibrant, modern woman in mind.
