Time Honored and Sea-tested
The Fisherman's Sweater comes to us via a long lineage of sailors, explorers, and innovators.
Originally hand knit for fishermen in the Irish Islands, it was adopted at the turn of the century by Ernest Shackleton and his crew, who took the knit rollneck all the way to the Antarctic. Later embraced by the British Navy, the sweater was refined and mass produced to outfit thousands during the First World War. It then found a new home with submariners, who embraced any woolen comfort they could get on their long voyages beneath the waves.
In the decades since, the sweater has become an iconic garment for the maritime and sea-loving world. We've updated it with soft, breathable cotton, but kept every other detail the same – the classic roll neck, a ribbed cuff, and functional side slits.
