Italian Finds: Wool Tirolese Jacket

This is my favorite of the finds from the Tirolese booth-- my beautiful vintage Austrian jacket. There is so much detail and fine craftsmanship packed into this single piece of awesomeness...



For example, just look at it. The bone buttons. The pocket details. The collar awesomeness. 



Here's a closer look at the machine-embroidery on the collar... AND the cool bone buttons. 

Bone. Buttons. 

Austrians be like, 

"JA WE WILL PUT BONES ON THIS JACKET AND IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL JA TOURISTS WILL DIG IT AND THEN THINK WE WEAR THIS STUFF ALL THE TIME JA."

"BECAUSE OF THE BONES. JA." 

Actually, no. But seriously. The bone buttons are cool. 


They're even on the back and edge the cuffs. 


LOOK AT THAT BACK DETAIL. So incredible. 


Yeah. It's my favorite thing, pretty much, ever.
