Product description

Oh, professor! This slim V-neck cardigan is knit flat in Loft and seamed. Dapper pockets begin with linings worked separately and then knit onto the fronts (making it easy to add a secret contrast color inside the pocket if you wish). A pocket edging in 1 x 1 rib keeps the pockets from gaping open. Set-in sleeves ensure a tailored fit and tubular ribbed edge treatments provide a beautiful and durable finish.

Designer: Michele Wang

Collection: BT Mens Vol. 2
