These designs are quintessentially dapper and eternally stylish. Style them on their own, with a shirt underneath, with jeans, shorts or even a smarter tailored trouser and blazer. Co-ordinate them or clash them in vivid acid brights and sober neutrals alike.
The Prussian Blue V - A deep teal-like blue is a prevalent, relevant colour this year - probably because it embodies depth as well as warmth, cool with calm, it’s cosily enveloping, yet never overwhelming. It’s one of those colours that has great presence. It really makes a statement, however is very easy to wear. Not as serious as navy, not as bright as cerulean.
Pantone, the colour specialists, love this colour "Blue brings a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit, instilling calm and confidence and offering refuge."
It looks amazing on a zoom call and when we can will be great worn to the office, the gym, worn out to a gig ....
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.
