“There’s something so comforting to me about seeing a man in a smoking jacket-style cardigan. I wanted to give the option of wearing the collar up, or folding it down for a shawled-collared effect. The deep ribbing at the placket keeps this cardigan casual and wearable for any occasion.”– Michele Wang
