“There is one knows not what sweet mystery about this sea,” Herman Melville once wrote, “whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak to some hidden soul beneath.” Wise words from a wise mariner, and an explanation, or at least a hint, at why the classic styles of the sea-goers of yore still speak to us in such vivid tones. And what is more stylishly nautical than nautical stripes? Not much can compare, although a certain Channel Isle and a certain style of sleek sea vessel might come close. With all this in mind, we’re proud to introduce the Guernsey Clipper, our latest 100% cotton sweatshirt, presented in an eye-catching pattern of extra-fine Breton stripe. As alluring on land as it is on the waves, the Guernsey Clipper will instantly become the captain of your cold-weather wardrobe, pairing effortlessly with denim, and going equally well over an Oxford or casual button-down shirt when you choose to dress it up for a night at port.
