JKISSI : The weather doesn’t appear to be too warm or too cold which makes for the perfect temperature to go ahead and put on a knit sweater. The fall seems to be everyone’s favorite season before we transition into the cold winter. The special thing about the fall is the ability to layer up while still showing each clothing piece unlike the winter season where you are forced to be bundled up for your dear life. Knitted sweaters are perfect layering pieces in the winter when it becomes excessively cold to simply wear by itself. We didn’t have the chance to post about this last fall/winter but knitwear played a good role in the blistering New York City cold. It also was beneficial when the weather was just good enough to wear it alone. We came up with the idea of formulating a post for different fall items also providing a more vivid look into each article of clothing.
Fit Description – I’m slightly disappointed that I haven’t had the time to really wear in my APC jeans this past summer. To make up for the lost time I have been trying to fit them into my rotation more frequently. In addition I have been looking at other raw denim jeans to purchase once I’m completely finish with this pair. The khaki GAP utility shirt is two years old and still holds its color and fit from when I purchased it originally. I have to admit that shirt is probably the best purchase I have made at the retailer. The Cowichan sweater pictured above was a steal that didn’t require any type of alterations which really surprised me when I received the sweater. The geometric patterns on the sweater is what really caught my attention at first glance. The Cowichan tribe of British Columbia are known for hand sewing similar sweaters to get through harsh winters. The Sperry Topsider boots were a excellent boots purchase that I made last year around this time. This year it will be interesting to see what kind of boots I will purchase. I have a solid list of boots varying in different styles that I’m looking for this season. You can surely stay tuned for that post in the future.
The fact that all of these sweaters above are all hand knitted right here in North America should convince you to purchase one. These sweaters will keep you incredibly warm during the fall/winter and are great layering pieces. Today, with the majority of larger companies moving their production over to the East, it’s always great to highlight the ones that stay true to the essence of American production. The good people at Granted Clothing gave us a series of pictures depicting how the sweaters start out from scratch to the beautiful sweaters pictured above.
