The last decade has seen something of a cardigan revival with preppy geek chic and indie rock boy stylings bringing back this iconic item of casual knitwear. Our bomber cardigans are designed with a dash of sports casual luxe attitude – this piece of classic Ivy league casualwear is back with a vengeance. Choose from black or navy extra-fine merino – a timeless casualwear option worn with a t-shirt underneath.
The Navy- more flattering than black, navy conveys importance, confidence, power and authority as well as intelligence, stability and unity. Navy pairs wonderfully with most colours and flatters most skin tones.
Created from the most prized extra-fine merino wool and silk these knits are the ultimate statement in debonair and luxe attire. Attention to detail is paramount and even the provenance of the yarn (Australia and New Zealand) is incredibly important to us. These knits are like the very finest cashmere in terms of their feel and drape and because the merino wool is lightweight rather than dense or chunky, knitted in a textured finish it boasts incredible thermal qualities - making the bomber also suitable for 3 season wear.
Our knitwear has been created both ethically & sustainably at every stage - it costs us more, but we hope you agree it's worth it.

More about Merino.....Merino is an amazing fabric. Merino wool is really soft, and it isn't scratchy like “regular” wool. That's because merino wool fibres are much finer than standard sheep's wool. Make it worsted spun, Extrafine and the results are stunning.
It's is super light but very warm – it's weight to warmth metric is brilliant. The fabric has a natural loft that traps heat very efficiently between the fibres, making it warm and it is also good in the warmer weather as merino regulates your body temperature really well.
This makes merino a 3 season material – it is called extra fine for a reason, and our Worsted Spun Extrafine Merino is one of the best merinos. It breathes, and unlike bulky wool can be layered in late September or fly solo in early May, and all the days in-between…
The cuffs, rib and neck trims use a Merino & Silk blend created in the same factory - Silk adds a wonderful charm, with the sheen and the brilliance it gives to colours. The blend with this super fine merino makes our knitwear a precious item.
Our Men's Jumpers / Men's Tank Tops and Bomber Jackets are designed to be fitted.
For a slim fit buy your size. For a looser fit buy a size bigger. The Tank Top will feel more loose fitting (no arm restrictions) so you may wish to go down a size to the jumper. (Or take advantage of our Free Returns and buy both, sending one back)
Knitwear made for men, but can be worn by women.
For women the main decision is whether to go more fitted or looser (slightly wider & longer). Sizing is easier than normal as they drape over any bumps! As a rough guide using your normal size :
Merino and silk are natural fibres. We recommend doing a cool hand wash or specialist dry clean.
Or specialist dry cleaning
Our jumpers are made of natural fibres - to ensure longevity please
Washing by hand is highly recommended for your Merino and Silk blend. Turn your garments inside-out, hand wash using cool water. Avoid soaking for too long, a few minutes to help loosen the dirt before gently squeezing and rinsing, first with cool water.
Pre-dry your Extrafine Merino by gently rolling it in a towel – never wring. Reshape the garment while damp, (especially the neck line) and dry flat not on direct heat.
Occasionally it may be good to iron your Extrafine Merino to keep the fibres in good condition. Bizarrely low heat ironing makes the Extrafine Merino super soft by helping the fibres smooth down and go back to the soft state they were when you first bought it! Iron lightly when the jumper is still damp, with a finishing cloth in between and hold the iron on a low setting possible & ideally without steam so you do not ruin the fibres. If dry ironing, use a slightly damp cloth in between to avoid glazing. Obviously, avoid the rib stripe.
