The Ahab - Natural

What you need to know

A night still and starlit at watch upon the deck, a dark shape preceding a burst of salty spray, and . . .

Thar' she blows, a cotton cardigan to weather the squalls, a shawl collar sweater stately enough for the captain himself! Introducing the Ahab, the natural follow-up to our wildly popular Ishmael sweater. Just like the Ishmael, the Ahab looks harpoon-sharp with a maritime-inspired shawl collar and heavy-gauge cotton yarn; unlike the Ishmael, the Ahab is a buttoned cardigan in a subtle oatmeal shade. And perhaps even more appealing than its classic nautical elegance is its pure versatility – the Ahab can ferry you from a formal dinner in the captain’s quarters to a wild night down by the docks in no-time flat, as it goes as well with a shirt and tie as over a Henley or even a graphic tee. So do Melville and yourself proud in a garment worthy of all the dashing adventure that such a name implies.

The Ahab is also machine washable on gentle cycle, meaning it's incredibly easy to wash out the sea spray after a long voyage.

Customer Reviews


I'm @asidney and I work at Bonobos. This sweater is surprisingly heavy gauge. Feels substantial, sturdy, but also very soft. It looks good with a lot of colors of pants, especially dark denim. Goes from the perfect Sunday morning coffee sweater to a dressier look with plaid or chambray shirts and cords or bull denim. Love this. Wore it to Bonobos bar night recently and received many compliments. I am a medium in Bonobos shirts and found this medium sweater to fit me perfectly.


Absolutely love the look of this one. Any info on when/if the small size will be available again?
