    The Story

    There are few items of clothing that have remained virtually unchanged for 400 years, and the guernsey sweater is one of them. Originally named for the small British island that produces them, the guernsey was first developed for 17th century fishermen. Soon its reputation for warmth and durability spread throughout coastal Britain, making it a favorite among sailors, adventurers and the occasional monarch. Not a bad r¿sum¿ for a sweater that's been keeping people warm for nearly half a millennia.

    Product Details

Soon its reputation for warmth and durability spread throughout coastal Ireland, making it a favorite among fisherman, adventurers and the occasional Hollywood icon. Not a bad résumé for a sweater that's been keeping people warm for a century. This one, in 100 percent wool with a traditional cable pattern, is our quintessential take.
