Gentleman Brawler Sweater
In a vintage shop on Portobello Road in Notting Hill, there’s a photograph of a boxer from the 1950s. He’s standing in a ring in a classic boxer’s pose—leaning slightly forward, feet staggered, one hand up, the other pushed toward you. His face is a roadmap of scars, his knuckles like craggy boulders.
What’s different about this photo compared to others you’ve seen is the way he’s dressed. There are no trunks and boxing shoes. No sheen of sweat.
There are elegant Italian dress pants. Patent leather boots. A coif of perfectly slicked back hair. And this sweater.
The draw is not only that this piece is handsome, refined, and stately, but that there is the notion that the person wearing it could knock your block off.
Gentleman Brawler Sweater (No. 6292). Exquisitely crafted and steeped in rich detail. Deep and luxurious ribbing. Four leather-wrapped shank buttons at the neck allow for several different looks and temperature settings. Made of pure cotton. Imported.
