In East of Eden, Cal (James Dean) wears this sweater during several of the most important scenes in the movie, including when he takes the train to Monterey to find his mother. Ann Weaver’s smart adaptation of the sweater retains the close, classic fit of the original while modernizing it with a bit more length and details at the cuff and hem.
