The Varsity Cardigan is the counterpart to our Varsity Jacket and unlike the varsity jacket that has maintained a steady place in contemporary fashion, the varsity cardigan is a classic style that deserves a comeback! We have developed our own varsity cardigan that combines elements of our favorite vintage ones. Unlike most vintage ones, ours is knit with 100% cotton yarn and a lighter-weight gauge which lends to a more flattering fit. Many of the details are consistent with the Varsity Jacket such as the colorways, chenille patch, and contrast ribbing. Like the rest of our varsity collection, we have spent the past 18 months perfecting the fit, feel, and details of the varsity cardigan and we are so happy with the result.
The Varsity Cardigan is a homage to a time when couples would go steady and embroider each other's names on their school jackets/sweaters. This is your grandma's/granddad's school sweater!
