Epaulet Fisherman Sweaters, Made in Ireland
Yup, I definitely went on a spending spree for knitwear this season. May I present our latest sweaters: chunky fisherman knits with shawl collars.
The pricing on these is insanely good, and these sweaters are basically perfect. They're made in Ireland with a 95/5 Wool-Cashmere fabrication and a gorgeous flecked finish to the weave. They're heavyweight and fairly slim for a traditional piece such as this. I'd recommend getting your usual Epaulet shirt sizing with the understanding that the sweaters will fit you a bit looser than usual. It's the style with these pieces. You can certainly size down one for a very slim fit.
This factory used to do (actually, maybe still does, I'm not sure) private label knitwear for Thom Browne. At $195, these cannot be beat:
ADDED: If you're already stacked up for knitwear, you might consider picking up one of these as a gift. Trad sweaters like this always appreciated and the slightly bigger cut makes them easier to size.
Are these available in LA or just NY?
