Pitch is a sweater that puts the neckline in focus. The V-neck in contrasting colour with its small gap, half-heartedly closed by leather cord lacing, makes an interesting detail highlighting your neck.

The sweater has a pleasant, flattering fall partly due to the fabric in the lovely silk-merino mix, and partly due to a bit of waist shaping.
