Knitwear has always been a staple in the &SONS collections. These timeless pieces have been featured in some of the most iconic images over the decades. Steve McQueen was known for styling out a classic shawl cardigan and it was this image in particular that inspired Phil when it came to creating our latest piece.
As always, Steve looked effortlessly stylish in a cardigan and I knew our Pioneers would feel the same. It’s a more tailored cut than our original cardigan and this was something I wanted to replicate in ours. The colour was our biggest challenge. We spent weeks looking through swatches to find the perfect rust/tan which had that stylish 60s feel without appearing dull or muted. I was also inspired by the shawl collars of early nautical jumpers; the large collar elevates the piece without ruining the silhouette. I have been wearing one of our early samples through the summer evenings and it’s my favourite garment at the moment.
Style Tip: Keep it classic with a simple white T-Shirt and pair of your favourite Brandon Denims
