Archival Cardigan Review

Cardigans are photogenic

Welt pockets & knit cuffs

Contrasting trim?

High buttoning neck (6, 7 or 8 buttons?)

As outerwear (but not bulky)


Machine knit in the U.S.A.

Sleeve sizing is tricky (no balloon arms)

100% Worsted Wool


Color or Grayscale?

Coming soon: Archival Buttons

Addendum:

A letterman style sweater worn by a University of Oregon women's tennis player from the 1930s.
