Denmark’s Andersen-Andersen may have only been founded in 2009, but the philosophy and approach of the brand go back much further. The brand is a ‘wool-first’ company who are driven by the goal of manufacturing the world’s best sailor sweater.
Designed in Denmark and manufactured in Italy, transparency, tradition, and quality are key for Anderson Anderson. It’s often the most simple items that are the best designed, and the humble ‘watch cap‘ or beanie is no exception. Originally designed for sailors on shipboard duties (and on ‘watch’), the Short Beanie from Andersen-Andersen is a strictly traditional take on this classic piece of clothing.
As our friends at Lost & Found accurately state, it can be tough for some people to find a good, well-fitting, short watch cap but this could well be the solution we’ve been looking for. Made from 100% merino wool and knitted in a full cardigan stitch — A tucked rib knit stitch, which creates the same series of wales on both the face and the back of the fabric — this is authenticity and good design at its finest.
Available for $70 from Lost & Found
