Belafonte Ragtime Channels Vintage Knitwear With Its A-1 Knit

Belafonte Ragtime‘s A-1 Knit in Charcoal and Brown is, well, A1. This signature piece from the heritage workwear favorite is made from a blend of wool, linen, & acrylic in Japan. This means that the material looks the part of the spa-coat/ work cardigan it was based on without – hopefully – without the impossibly itchy texture. If you know you know.

Composition aside, the design of this knit resembles that of a cossack or yes, “A-1” suede or leather jacket with its relaxed collar, two button-flap pockets, and button closure. Kept faithful with its short body, boxy silhouette, and ribbed hems & cuffs, this is what a modern interpretation of vintage should be. Not necessarily a modified fit but a melding of a classic fabric and timeless design to create a “new” or at least rarely seen piece.
