Indulgent Scarf Cardigan again in inventory, with new black – Everlasting Fashion

*NB: The black scarf really has black-horn buttons, not gentle brown as within the pattern proven.*

After few weeks’ delay, I am happy to say that the Indulgent Scarf-Collar Cardigan is lastly again in inventory – in a brand new black iteration in addition to navy and gray. 

Fairly a couple of went to the ready checklist, as might be to be anticipated at this stage; readers had been ready some time. However there may be nonetheless good inventory within the central sizes throughout all colors.

It is also price noting early, that I had misreported previously what was accessible at Anderson & Sheppard

This cardigan was designed with them, and initially they’d some inventory of the identical model of their London store. However that is not the case: the thick scarf cardigan they now have is knitted in Italy, moderately than Scotland. It isn’t as dense, as lengthy, or makes use of as a lot cashmere. 

It is nonetheless pretty, however it’s not the identical because the Indulgent Scarf, whose raison d’etre was to be essentially the most luxurious model doable of the menswear staple. 

I hope the black goes down nicely. Actually sufficient folks have been asking for it, and I’ve liked mine since I obtained the pattern. 

We have talked a number of occasions this yr about carrying black – right here with wire trousers, right here with a linen overshirt, right here with a polo shirt in an all-black look. There is a piece approaching black tweed as nicely. 

What I am more and more feeling is that it is best to put on black in additional informal supplies and types – tweed not worsted, wire not flannel, a polo shirt moderately than poplin. This may appear apparent or intuitive, however I are typically a gradual learner. 

A black scarf cardigan falls properly into that class, and is a match for all method of muted, chilly colors I like, in addition to suiting issues like darkish denims, pale beige chinos and inexperienced fatigues. 

I’ve chosen to point out the cardigan right here in a barely extra (for me) uncommon outfit, which illustrates the identical level. 

The shirt is a washed black denim from RRL. It’s a lot simpler to put on than a black shirt in a wiser materials can be, given its texture. Although in fact the actual fact black denim fades to gray helps too. 

The shirt, by the way in which, is a good color and a good denim, however I do want the RRL ones had larger collars. It is low on the again and imply in its level. I can solely advocate it when you like that model, or discover it fits you greater than it does me. 

Returning to the Indulgent Scarf Collar Cardigan, for anybody that wants a reminder, it’s made in 12-ply cashmere in Scotland – which suggests extra cashmere knitted in there than most Italian variations. 

It’s comfortable, fluffy and large, and I often put on a measurement small (I am six foot tall, 39-inch chest). Nonetheless I do additionally put on a medium, and simply discover that totally different, not mistaken. Just a little extra roomy and drapey. 

Within the pictures beneath, I’m carrying a medium within the navy, however a small within the gray (and a small above within the black).

The cardigan is a bit A&S used to promote of their Haberdashery store, however discontinued. I had one, and liked it a lot that I requested if we might convey it again collectively. 

​​If anybody desires to learn the total story behind the knit, it’s on the unique launch article right here. There are additionally extra pictures of the navy there, and of the gray on this text from final yr, after we launched that color. 

Lastly, I might like to complete with a testimonial, as a result of they’re at all times so good. That is from Paul: “Simply needed to verify that I…have a 48” chest measurement and the XL cardigan matches me very comfortably. I used to be a bit involved about match when ordering it, however it’s nice. As Simon says, it’s very comfortable and roomy, and there may be appreciable give within the knit. I’ve been very glad of it right now – chilly and gray outdoor, not feeling too nicely, I threw my (cream) scarf cardigan on for the primary time this winter and instantly felt hotter and happier, if not higher – it’s so snug and slouchy that it’s like carrying a hug. Pretty and cosy to curve up in – really indulgent!”

Different particulars:

  • The cardigan is knitted in Scotland, from the best 12-ply cashmere, additionally spun in Scotland
  • Makes use of unpolished horn buttons (at all times my favorite)
  • Has a button on the chest, and a hidden loop, to be able to allow it to be buttoned as much as the chin
  • Doesn’t have the final button on the backside of the placket many do. As a result of nobody does that one up. It seems to be bizarre
  • Has two hip pockets, however they arrive loosely sewn up, so you may preserve them closed if (like me) you favor them to not develop into saggy. However simply snip out the thread when you do need to use them
  • Might be worn open or closed, collar up or down, casually or formally 
  • As talked about, Anderson & Sheppard promote a number of different shawl-collar cardigans, however not this one presently
  • It’s accessible in black, darkish navy and flannel gray, priced £845 plus taxes. As ever, you’ll battle to search out higher worth by way of the quantity of labor and cashmere in there
