L.L.Bean Irish fisherman’s sweaters — I came across these last night while looking something up for a question someone had emailed me and I must say that I’m really struck by these chunky knit sweaters, which are available in crewneck, mockneck and cardigan styles in grey, natural and donegal tweed (pictured, because it’s my favorite) colors.

Now, these are what my brother would probably refer to as “old man clothing”, but I certainly see nothing wrong with that. Just look at how awesome these look and imagine how warm they would be to wear.

The price might be a bit steep for some at $130-$150, but they’re still made in Ireland.

You might want to check out Aran Crafts. Roughly the same price, made in Ireland, trimmer fit. Mockneck measures 2inches smaller in the chest than L.L. Bean. Disclosure: haven’t tried them myself.

Great tip.
