Newsboy Sweater Jacket
You’d see ads for these in Eaton’s winter catalogue, or maybe Simpson’s, with headlines like “Fancy Sweater Coat” or “Serviceable and Extra Warm.”
Usually in pure wool, almost always with shirt and tie peeking out from the top.
You’d wear it with a dapper pair of plus-fours and leather brogues. Top it off with a newsboy cap and take the Lanchester out for a spin.
A gentleman's revolution against the uncomfortable suit jackets and waistcoats that ruled your wardrobe for decades.
Is it any surprise this one still holds up almost a hundred years later?
Newsboy Sweater Jacket (No. 7085). We took 100% superfine Merino wool normally used for lightweight sweaters and plied the yarn to a heavy five-gauge, making it as robust as a fall jacket but with a light and supple feel of cashmere. A polished, lustrous texture in a substantial Shaker stitch. Twin chest pockets and two large handwarmer pockets with horn button closures. Large collar can be worn up and fastened with throat latch for added warmth. Genuine horn buttons. Imported.
