This luxuriously cabled cardigan updates a classic masculine style with a modern slimmer fit in the sleeves. Radmere’s trimly tailored shoulders are crowned with an extra-large shawl collar, and the densely cabled fabric in Shelter makes it warm enough to wear as a jacket in soft autumn weather. The intricate stitchwork will show to best advantage in light or bright colors; imagine it in a striking red like Long Johns or a mellow grey like Sweatshirt for very different effects.
