Kinsale Smocks

From a New York Times travel piece, 1986: 

"Generations of fishermen setting sail from Kinsale harbor in County Cork in southwestern Ireland have worn a version of the smock, a traditional garment favored by seafarers on the Celtic coasts of Europe - Brittany, Cornwall, Wales and Scotland as well as Ireland.

Today, the Kinsale smocks made in a workshop on Lower O'Connell Street near the harbor are gaining popularity in many other places, too. Unisex, roomy and made of natural fabrics, with deep, strong pockets, these fishermen's tops are among those rarest of garments - they seem to get better the more they are worn. Hip-length, with short slits at each side, they have long sleeves and are slipped over the head, pullover fashion."

A timeless denim pullover, perfect for a traveller, a gardener, a painter, or just an Ireland fan who wants a sturdy topper or jacket with giant pockets!

100% cotton, heavy denim. Goes on over the head-- no zippers or buttons. Made in Ireland.

I fell in love with this smock 15 years ago at an Irish shop in St. Paul, MN-- just had to have it! Unfortunately, my 5'3", 110# physique wasn't suited to this garment-- it's a SMALL, but clearly for a small MAN, not a dinky lady. I washed it a couple of times in a pathetic attempt to shrink it, but to no avail-- it kept its size and shape wonderfully, and clearly will wear like iron. I wish I had one to fit me, but have finally given in to reality at last, and am selling this one. Perfect for a smaller man... or a more standard sized American woman. 

Excellent pre-worn condition-- I think I wore it a couple of times (with the sleeves rolled up...I looked like a 7 yr old in her mother's top!), and have washed it twice.
