Set-in sleeves and waist shaping update the traditional boxy gansey for women who prefer a sleeker fit. Both yoke and upper sleeves are textured with a spare, high-relief, industrial pattern that recalls beams, trusses, and grating. The reverse stockinette body and sleeves are knit circularly to the underarm, then all pieces are completed working flat and sewn together. An open, minimally finished neckline and a light fabric of Loft make Breslin great for layering over collared shirts. This sweater can’t miss in nautical blues and greys, but consider an unconventional choice like Meteorite or Fauna for an earthier, warmer look.
