The Walker Sweaters from Cordings, Made in Scotland

Photos by Salt Water New England
Navy crewneck and V-neck sweaters are staples of my wardrobe.  But this Cordings classic take stands out for a few reasons. The weave is tighter, giving it a trimmer and more professional look. (Most of my crewnecks are a bit more casual.)  They use 10% cashmere.  And the ribs around the neck and wrists and waist make it look nicely finished and, paired with a white polo, just a bit sporty. They are made in Hawick, Scotland.

We took these lovely sweaters out today and they performed beautifully in the cool breezes off of the Atlantic.  Comfortable, warm, and not bulky, they fill a useful slot in a sweater wardrobe. 

These run a bit small/short, so use the measurements provided rather than relying on your usual size.  This also makes it a bit easier for them to be unisex items, and also to be worn under jackets.
