I just picked this Expedition sweater up on eBay and it looks to be the original MK1, which I've long been after.
The only thing is that I'm not really digging the nickle Indian head button on the shawl. The North Sea website indicates that brass anchor buttons are featured on this sweater, so I'm wondering where this came from. Can anyone shed some light on this; was it some retail collab or special/limited issue? I'm hoping that the fit hasn't been "updated".
Here's a link to the listing:
Last question - I'm a size 38R sport coat and purchased the above in the same size. I like a bit of drape and billow and don't go for the contemporary tapered look. I was initially looking forward to layering this over a button down, but judging from some of the other pics I've come across within this thread, that seems like a bit of a stretch. Are these sweaters really a form hugging fit and is there any chance of layering over a button down or would it make little difference due to the tightness of the shawl collar; ie. button down would not show?
Thanks for your feedback.
