A tailored shape comes together with refined surface details to create the perfect knitted jacket for Fall. The fabric (which is created by working with two strands of Loft held together) is knit to a sturdy gauge that is perfect for outerwear and provides a crisp stitch definition to show off the ribbing details that adorn cuffs and hem, as well as the eyelet shoulder detailing and structured shawl collar.
