The Honesty Cardigan is a classic garment with a contemporary twist. With a traditional V neck, Honesty gets an instant update by using the wrong sides of the stripes on the main body and the right side on the sleeves. The fit is classic, but with added length to the cuffs a contemporary feel is maintained. If your seams are good, Honesty can be a reversible garment so that the stripes appear the other way round.
