A good sweater vest is a wardrobe staple in my book: adds a bit of cozy wool and pop of color to any outfit, keeps you warm when it’s cool but not quite cold enough for a sweater, and is perfect for layering when the weather’s unpredictable.
Urubamba incorporates simple cables into a classic sweater vest shape for men and kids (and women who prefer this shape to Vilcanota’s more fitted style!). Cables frame swathes of stockinette and reverse stockinette forming contrasting “rivers” on the front and back. Rolled stockinette trim at collar and armholes gives it a casual feel and easy fit.
