The COTTON SUMMER CARDIGAN is a plain Letterman style cardigan often seen on mid-century college campuses, taking its place among khakis and madras fabrics in the pantheon of Ivy League Style.

Recreating the enigmatic qualities of a Cotton Knitted Cardigan from the 1960s, this 6-button cardigan uses a lightweight slub yarn, characterized by its uneven thickness and texture. It is created by intentionally introducing irregularities in the spinning process. These irregularities result in thick and thin sections along the length of the yarn, creating a unique and textured appearance that is conducive to a cotton of this quality.

The cardigan is knitted in a way to prevent slants and twists in the shape of the body and has a neutral to slim fit that is finished with symmetrical seamless inset pockets, deep ribbed cuffs and Water Buffalo Buttons.
