Merino Deck Sweater - Safety Red
We say welcome aboard to the Deck Sweater, based closely on the iconic USN deck sweater worn by American sailors during WWII. Where those military-issue knits were somewhat rough and ready, we've taken a more refined approach to make our Deck Sweater better suited to life on land, as well as at sea. An 8-gauge knit and a fully-fashioned construction mean the Deck Sweater is lightweight, breathable, and suitable for wear almost year-round. The neat mock neck splits the difference between a crew neck and a full roll neck, and is the perfect complement to casual outerwear, or a tailored jacket.
