Military inspired knitwear exemplifies the ideal of form following function. General Raglan and Field Marshall Kitchener were not fashion designers. Their garments were not created for the runway, but for a military campaign. Their appeal, however, is timeless.
The Brigade Pullover extends this tradition. With seamless construction and an offset zippered placket, the sweater hints at its military heritage, while maintaining a modern, stylish design.
This sweater is worked bottom up, with seamless construction. It features ribbed sleeves and side panels for a sleek, fitted look.
