This cardigan vest is the perfect layering piece for chilly Fall days. The wide honeycomb cables and nested pockets contrast with the simplicity of a wide, Reverse Stockinette striping pattern on the garment’s back. The choice of wooden toggle closures completes this rustic-yet-sophisticated look from designer Stephen West.
