The Skipper Vest in Black by Andersen-Andersen is made in a half cardigan stitch, medium weight, 7 gauge, 100% New Merino Wool knit with exclusively-developed long fiber extra spun yarn. Designed as a sweater vest with knit side welt pockets completely integrated into the piece, this outerwear or layering garment pulls its inspiration from traditional naval sweater jackets required for the variety of weather conditions at sea and reimagines it as a comfortable luxury piece appropriate for various dress or casual style journeys. With absolute consideration of purpose, an Andersen-Andersen piece carries the provenance of ethically top-harvested merino wool from Patagonia sheep that's yarn spun, dyed and knit in Italy with hand-linked and bar tacked assembly and fully fashioned interiors. To top it off, this piece has a knit ribbed band collar and hem to ensure it stays well placed through a variety of conditions and expeditions, along with a buffalo horn button front to offer styling and layering utility in a fully functional, finely finished, magnificent sweater vest. In a Black of the Abyss colorway, this piece from Andersen-Andersen is heartily knit in a multi-generational style worthy of maritime lore. This sophisticated and stalwart Skipper Vest is a modern style based on vintage sailor knitwear with a perfected fit, sure to become a definitive staple in your wardrobe for fall, winter, and spring.
