John Simons x Paul Weller

Shetland Fair Isle Crew Neck – Sienna

£159.00

Introducing the John Simons x Paul Weller Fairisle Yoke Neck Shetland Sweater!

Produced in the Shetland Isles in 100% New Wool, these tubular-knit sweaters feature a Fairisle yolk neck motif, prominent throughout the 1960’s and 70’s. With its Nordic connotations and association with outdoor leisure, the fairisle yoke has been a staple within many contexts; one can picture this sweater gliding across the mountains of Colorado at a ski resort circa 1960, as well as upon the shoulders of a young Suedehead on the streets of London in the early 1970’s. 

Working closely with Paul Weller himself, we have elongated the waistband and cuffs so as to replicate the characteristics of mid-century knitwear drawn from the John Simons archive, resulting in a high neckline which compliments the natural roll of a button down collar.

Produced in a substantial, super-soft, 2-Ply wool, which is at once both breathable and extremely warm, these sweaters are sure to serve you well from Autumn right through to early Spring

Due to the traditional dying techniques used on this garment a transfer of colour may occur during the manufacturers initial garment wash. This will not continue on subsequent washes.

 

We advise sizing up from your usual chest size.

Please allow for a tolerance of 1-2cms either way due to the nature of the fabric.
