What I want – North Sea Clothing Expedition sweater

October 18, 2010

As it seems to be getting colder and colder of late I think it might be time to turn my attention to knitwear. It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a fanatic of all things knitted and there’s nothing better than a chunky knit for keeping you warm in the colder months.

So with that in mind and as I need to update some of my tired old knitwear, I’ve been looking at this Expedition shawl collar sweater by North Sea Clothing London.

Made from a 5 gauge 100% pure new British wool and produced in a family run factory in Nottingham, and is based on original 1930’s naval sweaters. It’s available in two colours, either Navy (obviously) or cream, with a single brass shank collar button with anchor detail.

UK stockists include The Garbstore (London), The Vintage Showroom (London), Out of Town (London) and Jump The Gun (Brighton). To buy online you can also visit their website here: North Sea Clothing.

    Tried Heritage Research’s variation of this number on today. The shawl collar really adds a sophisticated edge to any man’s outfit. Good heads up.

    Wow just ordered one in navy! Got a little sailboat in Los Angeles, can’t wait to get out into the bay in that sweater and my Greek fisherman’s hat. I may be a rubbish sailor but I’ll be looking swell!
