Inspired by Ishmael from Moby Dick.

“Instead of scratchy gray fisherman’s wool, this sweater is worked in wonderfully soft superwash Merino in rich, kettle-dyed colors. But some practical details remain: a high cushiony collar to keep out the cold and long cuffs that let the full-length sleeves quickly con- vert to the classic fisherman’s 7⁄8 length, which keeps the sleeves clean and dry when he needs to get his hands dirty.”
