"The Worst Journey in the World."

A well-worn peacoat hangs on a hook by the door.

My host settles into a chair by the fire and pours two Glenlivets.

By the second pour, he’s telling me about the coldest, roughest seas he ever experienced.

Merchant navy and the Arctic Convoys of World War II.

From 1941 to 1945, 1,400 merchant ships and naval vessels transported provisions to the ports of Arkhangelsk and Murmansk in Arctic Russia.

Winston Churchill once described it as “the worst journey in the world.”

Uniforms were irregular and idiosyncratic. The sailors often relied on hand-knitted jumpers to keep out the cold. He showed me one.

Our version is a little lighter and more transitional, but still sturdy for hard wearing.

Merchant Navy Sweater (No. 7090). Elevated crew neck sweater in premium 100% cotton true Indigo denim yarns from the UK. The yarns start out very coarse like a pair of denim jeans, but we washed it down for a vintage look and feel. Anchor logo at chest. Heavy wash for unique faded indigo and soft handfeel (like denim pants). Imported.
