Vintage 1920's era wool varsity sweater. Made by the Luxknit Sweater Mills--Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I don't know if it is a college sweater for UW-Madison or a different school (high school or college). It was found in Madison so that would make sense but the "W" looks a little different than some of the earlier ones I've seen. The W tended to be a little narrower in cut. The sweater itself is in very good vintage condition. It is free of holes and has avoided moths. There are a few darker spots on the left sleeve (see pic), a little bleeding of the red into the white areas, and some lighter general wear from use and age. The "W" either had something sewn at the top or had damage because there was some crude stitching repair and there is still some damage/holes there. It seems to be in a mens small/medium range. The chest cut is narrow but these were worn quite tight back then.
MEASUREMENTS: pit to pit 17", top to bottom 29", top of shoulder seam to end of sleeve (with cuffs rolled up) 24", across the back--between the tops of the shoulder seams 18.5".
