Military inspired, think U2 reconnaissance and cold war, this bad boy is about half the weight of the original, but that’s sort of the idea with most modern interpretations. A blend of wool and anti-pill acrylic, the yarn is softer, lighter, and about as warm as most of us can tolerate in today’s semi-controlled environments. Trapunto stitched placket is faced with reinforcing cotton sheeting. Authentic 2-Ply rib knit collar, cuffs, and hem matched with a cross-stitched half-cardigan knit body form a classic worthy of its ancestors.
