All beach walks beg for layers — wool socks tucked into boots, long scarves into oversized sweaters. Bradhan is that cozy pullover you’ve longed for on every blustery day. Perfectly boxy in shape, this fisherman-inspired workhorse shines with simple details like exposed seams, rolled hems and a touch of ribbing at the dropped shoulder. Woolen-spun Shelter keeps warm air trapped in the fabric of this unisex staple, making it the ideal choice for layering both over and under other pieces.
