Where can I get a new top like this

I feel a bit embarrassed putting this photo up as this top is so old (33 years to be precise!) and I know itís not exactly the height of fashion, but itís a thin lightweight cotton, and I used to use it over the top of vest tops (undone) just as a cover up. Also rolls up quite small to put in a rucksack. I actually bought it for my very 1st Disneyworld trip back in 1988 so I had something to cover my shoulders without over-heating. Unfortunately itís definitely seen better ways and is still in my wardrobe (I promise I donít own any other garments this old!). I donít even know where I bought it now - possibly a market. I have searched online but canít seem to find anything similar. TIA. x

Bonmarche possibly ?

I have some summer tops that are older than this. No need to be embarrassed. When it's right, it's right !

Are you on Instagram? If you are search for Little Miss Super ShopperÖ she looks for specific items for people. You can just drop her a message with a picture and she comes back with something exactly like it or similar.

Hope this helps.

What's wrong with it? If its got holes sew some embellishments on it, if it's the colour, you could dye /tie-dye it. Looks like it's still got plenty of life in it looking at the photo

Itís got an oily stain(s) on lapel part that iíve not been able to get out. Also, up close it looks very very worn. Iíve tried whitening sachets & stain removers but doesnít fix it unfortunately.

Cotton traders have something similar - go on their website and search for wrinkle free cardigan. HTH

(BTW the vest top I'm wearing is older than my children - oldest is 19 next month!)

I would do a search online for ďbaseball jerseyĒ or ďbutton front v neckĒ- I think thatís the name for shirts with that style of collar and shape.
