The Ishmael - Black Flecked

What you need to know

“Call me Ishmael.” And so begins the preeminent adventure narrative of the 19th century, and arguably the greatest American novel ever written. To honor Mr. Melville’s opus, and giant white whales everywhere, Bonobos is elated to offer the Ishmael, a new maritime-inspired shawl collar sweater. And while it may be ideal for a tumultuous jaunt aboard the Pequod with Captain Ahab, the Ishmael is equally suited for more land-lubbery occasions, both casual and formal. Made from heavy cotton yarn with that high shawl collar for extra warmth, this is one sweater that’s going to get some serious wear this cold-weather season. Great for dates on the town, perfect for lazy Sundays by the fireplace, ideal for reading a dog-eared favorite about high adventures on distant seas, the Ishmael is as versatile as it is winsome, as comfortably warm as it is nautically sharp.

Distinctive Look...

I love this sweater. The shawl collar is quite popular this season on the runway. I like it because it's something other than the standard crew-neck/v-neck cut. The knit is heavy but soft -- some heavy cotton sweaters can feel uncomfortable on bare skin, but this one can be worn with short or long sleeves beneath. Great for layering with turtle necks and t-shirts.
