• Patch pockets and elbow patches finish the look.

Tweaked just a bit from the boy’s version, called Library Cardigan, Scholar is equally dashing for men and women, as shown here on my dapper brother-in-law, and on Micah, who dressed it up to wear in place of a blazer. The studious look of this classic design goes with everything and looks amazing hanging over the back of your chair at work for easy access when the air conditioning is too much.
