The Transatlantic Sweater.

 

Go way back, and further still.

The original “ganseys” were knitted by hand in fishing villages along the British coast. The kind of sea-tested, hard-wearing heritage that can only come from somewhere around the 52nd and 53rd parallel.

The sweater for men who tell legendary stories often colored at the edges with uisce beatha (whiskey, or "water of life") and steeped in salt air.

Men who wear sweaters like this one. Knits so durable they’re handed down along with fishing boats and nets from father to son.

 

Our Transatlantic Sweater (No. J8201) is an American take on the Gansey, translated here for three-season wear and knit from uneven budding cotton yarns—which give the sweater a slubbed, ropey texture without sacrificing softness. Three color twists result in a handsome marled effect. Substantial enough for bracing days at sea and yet so comfortable, you’ll keep it in heavy rotation all season. Half cardigan stitch across body and sleeves, with racking stitch at front and back yoke. Rib stitch with racking at sleeves and hem. Rib collar. Slightly boxy fit. Imported.
