Norwegian Fisherman Sweater



A true preppy classic, the Norwegian sweater was originally designed as a way of keeping Norwegian fishermen warm whilst out at sea. Being a practical and well put-together garment preppies have adopted these sweaters as necessary skiwear. You'll see loads of these on the slopes at Aspen or Gstaad!

 

Outlandish snowflake designs and reindeer designs do make for fantastic Christmas jumpers but the classiest of the lot is this sweater from L.L. Bean. One of the most coveted preppy items of all time but hard to find these days. Pick up one if you see one and you won't be disappointed... this sweater will last forever! I bring mine everytime I go skiing or even if the weather takes a slight turn.
If you're feeling brave why not have a go at knitting your own!
