Fair Isle Slipover

No. G1169




GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

Six Degree of the Prince of Wales.

Just like the fabled cinematic parlor game based on the “six degrees of separation” concept, where every actor in the history of film is linked via film roles to a “certain other actor” within six steps, so too are certain looks linked to the Prince of Wales.

What he lacked in ruling acumen, he made up for in elán. He broke rules, paired ascots with everything, and never met a bold and enormous pattern he didn’t adore (see: houndstooth, windowpane, Glen check, etc.). We might not even have known about Fair Isle knits if he hadn’t worn them first.

Fair Isle, as you know, is one of the Shetland Islands. It’s quite cold and blustery. Garments of warmth were and still are a necessity. Somewhere along the handwoven timeline, the iconic multi-patterned, multicolored look got baked into the psyche of the local weavers. It was their little secret, much like the island itself (current population: 55).

Then, of course, the Prince got wind of it.

Fair Isle Slipover (No. G1169). Pure Shetland wool. Ribbed at the V-neck, armholes, and hem. A staple of the British merchant seaman’s kit. Excellent with a collared shirt and tie. Traditionally sized to wear under your best herringbone or Donegal tweed jacket. For a more relaxed fit, order one size up. Pairs nicely with libations of the amber persuasion, roaring fires, and stories accentuated by a few fibs. Made in Scotland.
