Vintage Vivienne Westwood Fall 1988 Time Machine plaid armor jacket vest sleeves
I DO NOT ACCEPT OFFERS ON MY ITEMS. THIS INCLUDES ASKING ME FOR MY BEST PRICE. COLLECTION: Fall 1988 “Time Machine”. SIZE: Vest – 38 / Sleeves – Medium. Chest (armpit to armpit across the front laid flat then doubled): 36″ – Please note that the bottom of the armholes (armpits) is lower on the body than chest level, the chest measurement is 10″ down from the top of the vest. The vest is labeled 38 so take that into consideration when sizing. Shoulders (straight across from edge to edge): 12. Sleeve (total length from top to bottom): 26. Length from top to bottom (vest): 23 1/2″ Front / 21 1/2″ Back. CONDITION: Very good vintage condition, especially for being over 30 years old. The very minor flaws I noticed are: there is a very faint spot on the lining of the vest (would not show up in photos, that’s how faint it is); there is some minor sweat ringing around the bottom of the armholes on the lining, the left side is so faint that it would not show up in photos, the right side is shown in Photo #10; the leather mini straps on the sleeves are not flat due to being put through the buckles over the past few decades; and there is slight wear to the orb buttons on the vest, it appears that the engraving of the orb logo on the buttons was outlined in white, and on a few of the buttons the white outlining is not as strong on the top of the button (Photo #4). I mention everything I see, no matter how small, and all four of these issues are very minimal. DESCRIPTION: Outside of anything she designed for the World’s End collections, the armor jacket from Fall 1988 is the most iconic design Westwood did in the 1980’s. Jacket is almost a misnomer, since the pieces are actually vests with attachable/detachable sleeves. I have another armor jacket from Fall 1988 where the sleeves are a different color from the vest, and those sleeves also have separate labels in them so I assume they were bought separately in a mix-and-match situation. Anyway, where was I? The vest and sleeves are made from a thick plaid wool in green, brown, and pale creamy yellow. The vest has oval orb logo buttons down the front, and there is an embroidered orb logo on the top of the right sleeve. The vest has two chest slit pockets and two lower flap pockets. At the shoulders of the vest are small metal buckles for attaching the sleeves, which have mini leather straps attached to the top to put through the metal buckles on the vest. The vest is 2 shorter in the back than to the points in the front. The sleeves were designed to resemble the arms on a suit of armor (thus the obvious name “armor jacket”). To create the suit-of-armor silhouette the sleeves have shaped panels around the shoulders, pointed elbows, and attached flaps around the inner arm (over cut outs in the sleeve on the inside). The armor jackets shown on the runway for Fall 1988 were different fabrics than this plaid vest, so I included a screenshot of the runway showing pieces (including the vest without the sleeves attached) in this plaid wool fabric (Photo #11). Photo #12 is a Fall 1988 armor jacket from Westwood’s personal archives, featured in the book Fashion Unfolds, which details the 15 most iconic designs Westwood created.
