This sheepskin jacket, made in Czecholovakia, was a twenty-first birthday present from my parents at the start of the 'swinging' sixties. The suede outer started life as pale blue but it has faded over time, as have I - it looked a lot more 'swinging' when I could wear it with a tumble of long, dark hair!
It is a big, bulky piece of clothing. Sheepskin these days is crafted to be a much lighter, softer material and is therefore far easier and more comfortable to wear. Due to its bulk this old jacket spends its time just hanging in the wardrobe, but for sentimental reasons I am loathe to part with it.
