For centuries men explored the world without the advantages of synthetic fabrics. Technical gear was created from wool, leather and fur. Their clothes needed to be comfortable, warm, provide ease of movement, and adapt to the conditions they encountered. Armed with these garments they were able to summit mountains, cross oceans, and explore polar ice; and they looked good doing it!
The Expedition pullover continues the tradition of achieving attractiveness through function. It utilizes traditional, seamless Gansey construction, as well as a front split to maintain a comfortable body temperature. Cables at the shoulders provide extra structure and a better fit.
Having a sweater that works well is a necessity for all men, whether they are hiking a nature trail, exploring a new neighborhood, or navigating a weekend dinner party. The Expedition Pullover is destined to become a favorite of any man.
