“There is always so much inspiration to be found when studying military clothing. I love the juxtaposition of a well-tailored garment with a utilitarian purpose. This sweater recalls those traditions (a rich forest green fabric, charcoal grey elbow patches, a double-ribbed neckband) and pairs them with textures found in traditional fisherman knits (ribbed “seam” detailing, allover checkerboard patterning). Though the shape is simple, the details make it special.” – Jared Flood
