Designer Jared Flood suggests layering this timeless piece under jackets to let the bold stripes peek through, or wearing it on its own as a graphic piece that isn’t overstated.
He designed it in his own fingering-weight yarn, Loft. The sample shown here uses the traditional dark-on-light stripe variation (with stripes of 'Cast Iron' on a field of off-white 'Fossil'). You can check out all 32 colors on the Brooklyn Tweed Loft page.
