Fashion is cyclical, right? Everyone says so, and it’s an adage that apparently applies to everything — even shawl collar cardigans, which are suddenly all over the place. And if you feel inclined to rock some AARP style, you might as well go with the best cardigan on the market.
The Real McCoy’s iteration of the shawl-collared cardigan will make you feel like Mr. Rogers, but the hardcore version. The chunky gauge knit is actually cotton, so you can throw this thing on right over a tee-shirt without worrying about itch-factor, and it’s got the classic button-front and two pockets.
And because versatility is key in regards to something that’ll last this long, the dark-grey color will work with just about anything in your wardrobe, or by itself in front of a roaring fire.
This big ol’ made-in-Japan sweater is available for $450 from Standard & Strange.
