Vintage Marilyn Monroe Sweater

This is a timeless sweater that can simply express your love for Marilyn Monroe.  It is ideal for movie fans who are not much into the gangster or more revealing hoodies styles.  Like the desert eagle gangster hoodie, this comes in over 10 colors! I have been considering buying all 10 just to frame them and decorate my house in a fun way.

When it comes to price for quality this marilyn monroe sweatshirt can not be beaten.  It is sold for about $20-$30 depending on the time of year, in the summer expect to get it for only twenty bucks.  I have had the purple one for two years and it hasn’t lost any of its color.  This is probably thanks to the polyester blend which really holds the dye in the fabric.

The sweater was originally sold in early 2000s L.A. gift shops, and is one of the longest running editions of Monroe designs available.  At first it was only available as a hood less sweater, then the company spread out to the zipper hoodie as well as a pull over ; all of which come in tons of colors. If you are looking for a Christmas gift for a Marilyn Monroe fan I would definitely recommend this or one of the many other vintage sweatshirts.

The image used is taken from a 1957 photo shoot meant to promote the movie “The Prince and the Showgirl”.  I am not sure who the photographer was, but i would guess George Miller, who took  alot of pictures of the actress during the late 50s.

The brand behind this hoodie is yet again California Republic who has a very large presence selling these on Amazon.  They are made in california and sold in aeropostle and rue21 brick and morter stores around the state.  It is high quality and not something from China, those of which i refuse to wear or write about.
