4_ The Fisherman Sweater

Never say no to a thick, chunky, and cozy wool knit sweater. Originally hand-knitted for Irish fishermen in the 1800s the Fisherman Sweater is now a classic for the city to seaside wardrobes alike.

Never say no to a thick, chunky and cozy wool knit sweater. Originally hand-knitted for Irish fishermen in the 1800s the Fisherman Sweater is now a classic for city to seaside wardrobes alike. 

I love classic fisherman knits from the traditional makers such as Aran Crafts or for a more modern and slouchy style look to brands such as Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein spanning the 1970s-1990s. 

BRANDS TO LOOK FOR_ Aran Crafts, Woolrich or Pringle of Scotland, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Perry Ellis and Burberry. 

KEY DECADES_ 1950s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s.

FABRICS_ Wool.

COLORS_ Natural sheep's wool colors such as cream, off-white, grey and brown. 

STYLE NOTES_ From complex cable knits, to diamond patterns or a simple heavy rib, thick, cozy and warm is the idea.
