Brigade Pullover

Military inspired knitwear exemplifies the ideal of form following function. General Raglan and Field Marshall Kitchener were not fashion designers. Their garments were not created for the runway, but for a military campaign. Their appeal, however, is timeless.

The Brigade Pullover extends this tradition. With seamless construction and an offset zippered placket, the sweater hints at its military heritage, while maintaining a modern, stylish design

This sweater is worked bottom up, with seamless construction. It features ribbed sleeves and side panels for a sleek, fitted look.
